Pastoral care at Flegg High Ormiston Academy is about encouraging learners’ personal and social development and fostering positive attitudes through the guidance of positive role models.
Through the quality of teaching and learning; through the nature of relationships between pupils, teachers and other adults; through arrangements for monitoring and reviewing pupils’ overall academic performance; through specific pastoral structures and support systems; and through extra curricular activities and the school ethos.
Working closely with learners and their families we will support all learners to achieve their potential and benefit from the full range of educational opportunities Flegg High Ormiston Academy has to offer.
