The aim of the pastoral
system is to allow each student to allow each student to fulfil
her or his potential in a happy and secure environment led by one
of the Deputy Heads, the system is run by the year managers who
take overall responsibility for one year group. For parents, the
first point of contact with the school is the form tutor. We are
always willing to arrange appointments for parents to come into
school and discuss their concerns with us and we would urge anyone
with a problem not to delay in referring it to us.
In general, we encourage
students to exercise self discipline at all times. The atmosphere
in the school is friendly and purposeful but we do insist that high
standards of behaviour are observed by everyone. We trust that parents
who choose Ivy Bank will support the school's approach to discipline.
Our code of conduct is based on courtesy, consideration, care and
efficiency within the school community. We prefer to reward rather
than punish and we expect everyone to behave in a responsible manner
at all times.
