“Students’ personal development and well-being are outstanding” OFSTED
Students, upon joining the School, are assigned a tutor group and will have most of their lessons within this group, they will make new friends and be supported by their personal Form Tutor. Within the school community each student is a member of a House providing opportunities for students of all ages to work together and support each other. Daily contact with a personal tutor ensures that your child is well cared for on a daily basis and ensures on-going consistent support for academic development and well-being.
“The excellent relationship between students and their teachers lies at the heart of the School’s success” - OFSTED 2014
A programme of PSHEE is delivered via Religious, Philosophy and Ethics lessons, daily tutor periods and Enrichment Days. Older students mentor younger students to help with individual subject study, organisational skills, homework and revision. Learning Mentors are also available to support students, if required, with their learning. Specialist staff are available to provide careers advice, health advice and the School does provide an independent counselling service.
The Form Tutor and Heads of Year are responsible for the care and support of students along with their academic progress by working closely with parents. This positive and effective partnership between home and School is a key strength of Barton Court and ensures that children’s well-being and personal development are outstanding.
“An excellent school. I am delighted with my children’s academic progress and the pastoral care that is offered at Barton Court.’ Parent
