Future Students

Pastoral Support

As with KS3 and KS4, we have a dedicated pastoral team working with Sixth Form students throughout their time with us to ensure they can thrive and flourish.  Pastoral staff are non-teaching and so are available throughout the day to support both students and parents should any issues arise.

Home to School Contact

At the end of each term, we send a report home detailing both progress made throughout that term, as well as attitude towards learning.  As well as helping students understand where they are in relation to expected outcomes, these reports also help determine how much Agreed Absence students will receive the following term.

In addition to regular parents’ meetings for consultation with subject teachers, there are also special meetings for students and parents in other school year groups:

  • In the Autumn of Year 11 to give information about the Sixth Form and post 16 study options
  • In the Summer of Year 12 to give information about post 18 options, including the procedure for applying to university / college.

Wellbeing in Mind Team

The Wellbeing in Mind Team consists of an NHS staff team, based in school, to offer support to students experiencing common emotional wellbeing difficulties.  They provide additional care and interventions for young people experiencing difficulties including:

  • low mood
  • anxiety
  • low self esteem

The team works closely with external services so that those with more complex problems can get the right help, from the right people, more quickly.

Difficulties that young people experience can affect things like work, friendships and home life. Having the right support available when and where it’s needed can help to lessen the impact things like stress or anxiety have, both now and in the future.

The wellbeing in mind team is made up of NHS professionals including senior clinicians, higher-level therapists and education mental health practitioner trainees (EMHPs).  For more information on the work of the Wellbeing in Mind Team, you may like to watch the following video.

Referrals to the Wellbeing in Mind Team are made by in-school Pastoral Staff.

Key Stage 5

The KS5 Pastoral Team consists of Mrs Holden, Mrs Pulling and Dr Simha.  Each member of the team has their own specific role, as well as dealing with day-to-day issues in the Key Stage as and when they arise.

  • Mrs Holden: Head of Year 13 (sah@maltonschool.org)
    Mrs Holden’s focus is particularly on academic support and the UCAS process.  Additionally, Mrs Holden will support those students who have opted for the Early Entry Pathway.
  • Mrs Pulling (rxp@maltonschool.org): Head of Year 12
    Mrs Pulling’s role within Sixth Form is to support students academically, socially and emotionally.  Mrs Pulling will also provide specific support to those students who have opted for the Higher Vocational Pathway.
  • Dr Simha: Head of Guidance (aas@maltonschool.org)
    As Head of Guidance, Dr Simha is able to provide students with a tailored ongoing plan of support to help ensure they achieve their ambitions when they leave us aged 18. The process starts at the beginning of Year 12 and continues throughout Year 13.  Dr Simha will play a particularly important role if you choose the Enhanced Pathway.

The Pastoral Team are supported in their work by the Sixth Form Tutors.

In-School Therapist

For students requiring an individual rather than issue-based approach, the school employs an independent therapist, Karen Chapman, who has worked with young people and in schools for many years.  Students can be referred to Karen by either their Head of Year or the Director of Pastoral Care & Safeguarding.  Using a person-centred approach, Karen would typically work with a student for up to 6 weeks, with therapy being tailored to their specific needs.

Supporting Young People at Home

There are a number of organisations who have produced resources which may help you if you are struggling with particular issues.  We have listed some of those here:

  • MindEd Hub: a free educational resource offering advice on young people’s mental health, created by parents and experts.
  • The Go-To: an NHS North Yorkshire resource on wellbeing and mental health for young people and their parents / carers.
  • ThisMayHelp: an NHS resource to help anyone who has concerns about a young person’s mental health. It includes information, short films and additional resources on a wide range of subjects, which have been put together with the help of parents and young people themselves.
  • The Wellbeing in Mind Team have also put together some resources to help support wellbeing.  This includes tips for all of us for looking after our general wellbeing as well as covering the main areas of concern: low mood, anxiety, self-harm, self-esteem, stress and sleep.  You can access this information here.
