At Moreton we recognise that a student’s happiness and well-being are the foundation for their success, so we work hard to create a strong family ethos to underpin school life for our students. Our inclusive pastoral care system aims to promote responsible behaviour and respect for all.
We are committed to a positive approach and, whenever possible, praise and rewards are used to motivate and encourage the students to achieve their potential.
Every adult in school has a responsibility for the welfare and security of our students. Staff work together to ensure that our students are individually valued and well supported, regardless of their ability or needs.
Each tutor group has a dedicated form tutor that is the first point of call for students. The form tutor works closely with their tutor group on a daily basis supporting their development and awareness of wider school contexts. Each tutor group is also a member of one of our Amethyst Houses. Heads of House are responsible for the development, encouragement and participation of their house members in a range of activities both during the school day and within enrichment times.
