Principal Teachers of pastoral care

Pastoral Care staff have a responsibility for the general welfare of each pupil in their Group. They maintain an oversight of records and the attendance of pupils. They also make every effort to monitor the curricular progress of individual pupils and provide personal, vocational and curricular Pastoral Care. Personal and Social Education courses are managed by Pastoral Care staff.

Pastoral Care staff endeavour to ensure all pupils are interviewed at least once per session. They are normally the first point of parental contact with the school.

Principal teachers curriculum

They take responsibility for the organisation of learning and teaching within their own department. They have a responsibility to ensure that suitable course work is provided for all pupils and to monitor and review this in line with school, local authority and national guidelines, particularly in the light of Curriculum for Excellence. They play a key management role within the school and endeavour to keep parents informed of how they can work together with the department, for the benefit of the children
