Pastoral Care

Headteacher and Safeguarding / Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL), Mr Bovingdon, has overall responsibility for pastoral care. If you have a safeguarding concern, you should email Mr Bovingdon using admin@stwilfrids.devon.sch.uk . However, the following staff will also be responsible for pastoral care as follows:

  • Lower School: Hawks and Owls - Mrs Bovingdon (Head of Lower School) and Mrs Clack (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officer)
  • Upper School: Year 7, Year 8, Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 – Miss Shields (Year 7 and 8 tutor), Mr Holmes (Year 9 and 10 tutor) and Mr Bovingdon (Year 11 tutor).

We believe that the welfare and happiness of our pupils are central to their ability to develop as confident learners and as future leaders in society. For this reason, there is no higher priority than the provision of excellent pastoral care here at St Wilfrid's.

The tutor is the first point of contact between parents and school. Tutors monitor the social, physical, intellectual and emotional progress of their children, liaising as necessary with parents, individual staff or the whole staff body to ensure that their needs are being met.

Through meticulous planning and attention to detail, our pupils also benefit from a wide range of extra-curricular activities beyond the school gates.
