The pastoral care of students at The Douay Martyrs Catholic School is paramount. In order for young people to be able to work towards fulfilling their God- given potential it is essential that the feel safe, secure and happy. Every young person is assigned to a tutor group overseen by a Head of Year. Colleagues within each year group pastoral team meet regularly to discuss with the Head of Year any concerns that have been raised by them regarding their tutees. Equally, the role of parents cannot be underestimated in ensuring that the welfare of students is outstanding. To that end, tutors, Heads of Year and other colleagues who have pastoral care responsibility for students work closely with parents and other significant adults in the lives of young people to ensure that they get the best possible support in school and beyond it.
