Care and Guidance – Introduction

Care and Guidance at Philips High School is central to the development of our students. We believe that by providing a framework of support in a caring, yet disciplined environment, our students will be able to achieve their full potential. Following their inspection in February 2013, Ofsted described the care and support we offer our pupils as ‘outstanding’.

We have a dedicated team of Form Tutors who are able to support your child with any pastoral needs they may have. It is the Form Tutor who will have regular contact with your child through morning and afternoon registration. The Form Tutor should be the first port of call for any concerns or queries regarding your child. Staff at Philips High School value the partnership with parents and carers and believe that involvement in children’s education from home really matters; this is why we are proud to have achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award.  We ask that communication with home is kept consistent through the weekly signing of your child’s planner but welcome further contact from parents and carers regarding any aspect of your child’s education.

The pastoral need of each child is also further supported by the Heads of Year team. They are able to provide further guidance and co-ordinate packages of intervention with external agencies when a child may have additional needs. They also monitor the attendance, attainment and behaviour of their year groups.
