Eskdale School understands that when students feel settled and secure they will achieve more.
The school’s pastoral system – or the network of support we provide to students and parents – is a real strength and forms the basis of all that we do.
At Eskdale all students are allocated to a ‘house’ and subsequently a tutor group. Tutor groups are organised into year groups which allows supportive relationships to be formed with students from the same year groups. The form tutor is also the first point of contact for parents and carers who need to communicate with the school.
Every year group also has a Head of Year and member of the Senior Leadership Team who ensures that all students feel valued and supported.
You will often hear about the ‘family feel’ at Eskdale School and our pastoral care, which is based on ourvalues, enables our young people to resolve any issue which may be impacting upon their education.
