We provide exceptional levels of pastoral support to students through daily opportunities for them to review and reflect on their progress, assess their behaviour and to consider the wealth of information, advice and guidance offered to them.
Students are given daily opportunities to develop positive attitudes about themselves and the world around them.
Tutor groups are organised with no more than 10 students. However, much of the pastoral support is offered on a one-to-one basis and there are weekly FA Tutor sessions which allow additional one to one support as required.
We adopt a ‘stage not age’ approach, in which accurate, thorough baseline assessments enable us to challenge each student to work at their full potential at an appropriate level of learning.
Behaviour and Welfare staff and external sources of support and inspiration provide a major contribution to each student’s personal development and academic achievement. The deputy principal oversees close monitoring of student wellbeing and progress.
We deliver a pastoral care programme that gives students the opportunity to develop positive attitudes about themselves and the world around them; locally, nationally and internationally. Our students are open-minded citizens, proud of their local heritage but ambitious to engage with other young people globally.
The safety and wellbeing of our students is an absolute priority for every member of staff. We ensure rigorous training in this area using the following policies as guidance:
- Everton Free School & Football College Preventing Bullying Policy
- Everton Free School & Football College Health and Safety Manual Policies
- Everton Free School & Football College Medical Treatment for Students Procedures
We value the importance of promoting e-safety and using technology as a positive part of student learning and well-being.
The safety and well-being of our students is an absolute priority for every member of staff at the School. We provide rigorous training in this area and work closely with the DfE to ensure safeguarding procedures are fully up to date.
