Pastoral Care

‘Stopsley High School is a welcoming and inclusive community. Pupils from a diverse range of backgrounds and ethnicities learn to respect and support each other. They say they feel safe and there is little bullying or name calling. Pupils trust staff to resolve any issues that arise. Pupils who have experienced harassment outside of school praise the support from staff to deal with it. ‘ (Ofsted 2022)



The schools values of Ambition, Endeavour and Success are at the heart of our pastoral structure.


Every student in our Stopsley High School community is allocated to a tutor group.  Students meet with their tutor at the start of  each day. Tutors are both the students and parents first port of call should they have any queries regarding their day. During tutor time students participate in planned PSHCE activities.


Within tutor time students take the time to reflect on our Stopsley High School Non Negotiables daily to ensure they are prepared appropriately:

Our allocated Key Stage Leaders have overall responsibility for the tutor teams and the general welfare and behaviour of students within a key stage, and they are further supported by a Year Manager:
