Student welfare

At Warden Park we place the highest importance on ensuring that our students are happy and well cared for. We ensure that every student is known as an individual, that we are responsive to individual’s needs and that each child develops the confidence and resilience to reach their potential. Our pastoral support is exceptional and the strong relationships that we have with parents and carers underpins the support that students receive. Young people learn best when they have a sense of self-worth and a feeling of emotional security and our pastoral organisation provides the foundation that ensures students personal fulfilment and success.

Working in partnership is the key and our extended team of Pastoral Support Officers and Education Support Officers, alongside local external agencies, ensure that support in the Academy is effectively tailored to meet individual’s needs. 


The pastoral system is organised to ensure the care of the 'whole person'. At Warden Park this is achieved through our year group system.
