Every Teacher in the school has a responsibility for the physical, social, emotional and educational development of pupils. In this respect, they have a role to play in the school’s Pupil Support system. They work closely with the specially appointed Pupil Support Teachers who hold promoted posts in this area.
The main aim of the Pupil Support system is to ensure that the progress and welfare of pupils are carefully monitored during their time in Our Lady’s High School. There are five Principal Teachers of Pupil Support, one for each house. Pupil Support Teachers have a continuing responsibility for pupils throughout their school career. One of the advantages of this is that staff come to know pupils well and are in a better position to advise them when it comes to key stages their school careers.
Pupil Support staff rely very much on close contact with, and the cooperation of, parents. Parents seeking advice about any aspect of their child’s behaviour or progress in the school are encouraged, therefore, to contact the Pupil Support Teacher concerned to discuss progress by telephone or to arrange an appointment.
In addition to maintaining links with parents as often as possible, Pupil Support staff are also responsible for liaison with outside agencies which can be of great assistance in their work. These include the School Psychological Service, School Youth Counselling, the Social Work Department and Skills Development Scotland.
