Strangford College, Newtownards

Pastoral Team

One of Strangford College’s top priorities is the well-being of all its students. All staff have pastoral responsibilities for the social, moral, academic and spiritual development of the students in their care. Teachers in their role as Form Teachers are given specific pastoral responsibility for their Form Class. They are members of a team consisting of all the Form Teachers of the same year group under the leadership of a Learning Co-ordinator (Year Head). The Learning Co-ordinators in turn form a team under the Head of Pastoral Care.

The Form Teacher will care for the students in their Form Class through daily contact. The Form Teacher should also be the first person to whom a student will turn to for help, support or advice. On occasion, it may be necessary to refer a particular matter to the Learning Co-ordinator, the Assistant Deputy Principals, the Deputy Principal or the Principal.
