Pastoral Structure

At Valley Gardens, we strive to make sure our pupils are happy in school and feel safe. In order to do this we have a support network that pupils can call upon if they experience any difficulties. This network involves the form tutors and heads of year who are very experienced in addressing issues that pupils face. The vast majority of parental inquiries and complaints can be dealt with directly by this team. Details of the pastoral teams are below :
