What Future for Pastoral Staff

Anne Jakins

Recommended Posts

Should the pastoral care of students remain the responsibility of teaching staff? I have huge respect for Heads of Year but often think that juggling a teaching commitment with 'trouble shooting' and all the pastoral responsibilities of monitoring behaviour and progress in a year group must sometimes seem overwhelming. With the current trend towards employing administrators to lessen the teaching load, is this a role which could be delegated to non-teaching mentors or is it too specialised?
