The Pastoral Care system in Park Mains High School is arranged vertically, which means that your daughter/son should remain in the care of the same person throughout her or his school career. Pastoral Care staff are concerned with the overall welfare of all learners; they advise and guide pupils and monitor their education progress. By means of interview and a variety of other approaches they attempt to ensure they are in a position to provide pupils with the appropriate support throughout their school career. They make contact with parents and have an important role to play with parents when pupils are making option choices. They also maintain pupil records.
Parents should contact the School Office if they require a meeting with Pastoral Care staff or wish to pass on information. Because Pastoral Care staff have teaching commitments, it is always advisable to arrange a meeting time. If parents arrive at school without an appointment it may not be possible to see the appropriate member of staff.
Pastoral Care Group responsibilities for 2014 –2015 are:
Calder – Mr I Cox Cart- Ms S Stewart
Kelvin – Mrs L Hendry Leven- Mrs J Scott
The records of pupils are maintained and kept by the Pastoral Care staff under secure conditions. Records are destroyed 5 years after the pupil has left school.
