Pastoral care at Bourne Grammar is central to students' development. We believe that providing a framework of care and support for our students will assist them in their academic development throughout their school life.
It is the Form Tutor who will see the student during registration in the morning and who will deliver the programmes of Personal, Social and Health Education. Therefore the Form Tutor will be the teacher who develops the greatest understanding of each child's strengths and weaknesses and who will share in their celebrations and disappointments. Managing the Form Tutors in each year is the Head of Year. They will deal with any long term educational or disciplinary concerns.
We encourage parents to work closely in partnership with us. The School has a strong disciplinary code in conjunction with a desire for the students to behave and act in a responsible and respectful manner within our community. We hope that students will learn to develop their own individuality whilst maintaining sensitivity towards others of differing beliefs. We encourage students to take responsibility for their actions and to consider the impact of these upon the community.
If you require any support or advice about any aspect of parenting or family life, Family Lives offer a confidential helpline for parents and families.
The School places high expectations of behaviour upon the students but is aware of the importance of allowing students to learn from their mistakes. Students are expected to be respectful, safe and prepared in all that they do. We feel that the most fulfilled, happy, successful and interesting people balance a busy, challenging work life with a variety of other activities and interests. At Bourne Grammar School, students are offered a wide range of ways to further their personal development, not only to increase their future options and wellbeing, but also to make a valued contribution to the highly varied life of the School.
