Introduction

Croesyceiliog School is proud to be known as a school with a very high standard of pastoral care. We have a strong system which has been invested in and we believe that our pupils achieve academic success and reach their full potential in an environment where they are cared for and supported in every way.

Each pupil is in a form class. These classes are the key community for every individual class and form tutors work hard with their class to develop a sense of belonging and a team spirit.

Each year group has a dedicated Pastoral Support Officer (PSO). This person is a non-teaching member of staff who is solely focussed upon the welfare of each child in the year group. They help with “small” issues like a lost coat to bigger issues such as friendship fallouts. The PSO also is the key person in communicating with home and running events such as the parents’ evening.

Each year group is lead by a Head of Year. This person is the key member of staff for all matters pastoral or academic. With the support of the PSO, the head of Year ensures that there are high standards of uniform, attendance and achievement in their year group. They set the tone for the year group through assemblies and celebrate successes through the rewards system.

Croesyceiliog School also utilises outside agencies, such as the school counselling service, to provide support for our pupils. We have links with many services such as CareersWales, Torfaen Social Services and Police Schools Liaison. Any pupil or parent/carer can request support from these agencies via the pastoral staff at the school.
