The pastoral care of our students is a responsibility that we take very seriously. We prioritise creating and maintaining positive relationships between students, staff, parents/carers, our partner agencies and the wider community.
In order to ensure that all students work, learn and flourish in an environment of safety and respect, we have established our “THRIVE” values and “PREPARE” learning habits. THRIVE and PREPARE encapsulate our expectations for a consistent approach in ensuring that all students make positive behaviour choices, both inside and outside of the classroom. A summary of our expectations can be found by clicking the following link: Glossopdale School Expectations
