At Garston Manor we have 14 family groups. Our Family structure is an integral part of pastoral care system in school. Each family is named after a tree.
Families meet every morning for 30 minutes to register and for ‘family time’ and every afternoon after lunch for 5 minutes to register. On Monday mornings we have a Praise Assembly, where family leaders celebrate and share achievements, both in and out of school about their family with the rest of the school. Each family has representatives on the School Council.
The family structure underpins the school ethos of students supporting each other, as family members would. To encourage teamwork even further Family groups also take part in sporting activities together.
Parents are encouraged to contact family leaders via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning the school office, if they wish to discuss any matters surrounding their children.
