Inspire, Care, Achieve – our moto is at the heart of all we do at Greenbank.
Pastoral Care is a particular strength at Greenbank. The team of pastoral staff, including Personal Tutors, Progress Leaders and Learning Mentors has a huge amount of skill and experience. Pupils are well cared for and know that they can access help and support in school. They are encouraged to support their peers and there is a culture of talking and sharing.
External agencies visit school on a regular basis, including our School Nurse, Attendance and Welfare Officer, a counsellor and Sefton’s Well Young Person’s Project, to name but a few.
On entry to school, pupils are assigned a Personal Tutor and form group. They remain in this group throughout their time in school. A new Personal Tutor is assigned in Year 9. Personal Tutors meet with their forms daily, during Personal Development Time (PDT) each morning. The relationship between tutor and student is central to life in school. The Personal Tutor is the first point of contact for parents and carers. Each year group has a Progress Leader who oversees the progress, behaviour, attendance and pastoral care of their group. We feel the wellbeing of our students is crucial to their success in school.
As a result of high quality pastoral care, pupils are able to build upon their self-esteem, motivation and love of learning, whilst developing the necessary skills to become a responsible member of the community in school and beyond.
This is a school where parents know that their daughters will be cared for, where individuals matter, where each young person is known and where students feel that they can talk to staff.
