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.

The Haven and The Eden Centres
The Haven and The Eden centres are purpose built areas designed to provide additional support for our students with additional learning needs, English as an Additional Language (EAL) and those who have complex learning needs that prevent them from attending all of their timetabled lessons.
Specialist staff ensure that bespoke learning programmes and personalised support are put into place that allow students to continue to access the curriculum taught within the main school. In addition to this, where students need extra support with their conduct in school, they are also able to access therapeutic support to develop the strategies they need to be successful in the classrooms.
The Haven is a dedicated centre to working individually with students where they will receive workshops, 1:1 advice and support, as well as continuing with their academic curriculum studies in a calm and structured environment. This is a positive and supportive centre aimed at promoting the Team Moreton values of Be Prepared, Show Respect, Challenge Yourself.
We have a team of first aid trained staff to cover the school. We also have a NHS school Nurse who is allocated to Moreton and makes valuable contributions to the health and well-being of each of our students.
