The pastoral structure at Budehaven is based on year groups. Each year group has six or seven tutor groups of approximately thirty students and is led by a Coordinator of Learning and Personal Well-Being (often referred to as ‘CoLs’).
A key focus of the role of CoLs is to work with form tutors to monitor the progress of students and to help ensure they achieve their target grades based on their prior attainment. Therefore, working closely with Leaders of Learning and subject teachers, CoLs organise mentoring and other intervention strategies that help support students make progress.
The other main aspect of the role of the CoL, is the ‘personal well-being’ of the students in their year group. In addition to their tutor and CoL, pastoral support is provided for students by a Pastoral Support Assistant (PSA). Each year group has a PSA attached to it. The PSAs are located in the Pastoral Support Base (A20) and students can go there if they have a concern or problem.
