Pastoral Support

Our pastoral support model is a central part of our offering at City Gateway College. We believe that building a consistent, supportive relationship can help our students to over come barriers and succeed in education and beyond.

Student Journey Leads (SJL) are the members of staff who meet with young people at the start of their student journey and provide ongoing support throught their time at City Gateway. We want every young person we work with to experience easier transitions into adulthood, with better prospects that will result in them adding value to their lives, families and the wider community. Therefore coaches meet regularly with students to help them work on personal, academic and professional development goals. 

Our model is designed to ensure our students are:

  • Healthy
  • Safe
  • Engaged
  • Supported
  • Challenged

We support the whole person, enabling each individual to progress, gain qualifications and advance into employment. 

As well as SJLs we have a range of other staff who also support the wellbeing of our students:

  • Pastoral Manager (KS4 and KS5)
  • Inclusion Team
  • Safeguarding Manager
  • Careers and Progression Manager
