Pastoral Support

Progress and Pastoral Structures

From September 2017 all students will be in horizontal tutor groups. Each year group has a Year Lead who will be supported by a Key Stage manager. The Year Lead will manage the overall progress and pastoral care of your son/daughter. Concerns about individual subjects should in the first instance be directed to your son/daughter's subject teacher. The first point of contact for pastoral issues should be your son/daughter's form tutor.


At Three Rivers Academy our aim is to 'bring out the best' in every student. Students, parents and Three Rivers Academy Staff are all key stakeholders in ensuring good levels of progress. In order to give the students the best possible start in their academic and employment careers, all stakeholders need to ensure that they meet their responsibilities.

Students should:

  • Strive for 100% attendance
  • Maintain an excellent punctuality record
  • Ensure that their focus during lessons is always on the tasks set by the teacher. Class and homework tasks should always be completed to the best of their ability
  • Reflect on reports and progress and set targets for improvement
  • Learn from all experiences - especially mistakes and setbacks

Parents should:

  • Ensure that students are in school each day and on time
  • Ensure that there is clear and open communication between home and school
  • Promote respect for the school rules
  • Attend parent and information evenings
  • Ensure that students have a good breakfast each morning and promote the importance of exercise to promote good mental and physical health
  • Regularly discuss school work, homework and school reports with your son/ daughter

Three Rivers Academy Staff will:

  • Ensure that good quality learning opportunities are provided for all students
  • Discuss barriers to learning with students and set and monitor targets for improvement
  • Ensure that work is marked, feedback is given and students can reflect on this and improve.
  • Apply the Three Rivers Academy policies consistently
  • Ensure that there is clear and regular communication between home and school.
  • Ensure that misconceptions and negative attitudes are always challenged
