Pastoral Structure/Behaviour Management

At St Paul’s Academy, the curriculum is divided into Learning Zones, each one led by an Assistant Principal.

There are seven Learning Zones: English & Communications, Pure & Applied Science, Mathematics & Commerce, Religion & Society, Creativity & Technology, Performance Arts and Inclusion. Each Learning Zone, with the exception of Inclusion, has responsibility for a year group and moves from Year 7 to Year 11 with that cohort of students.

Each one of the learning zones is managed by a leader, Head of Learning Zone, who is responsible for the delivery of the subjects taught within the zones. These leaders are also responsible, with the Raising Standards Leaders, for the care of a particular year group. This means that the staff of a particular learning zone are also the form tutors of that year group. In this way, the same team of staff work together in the delivery of the subjects and in the care of the students. Each activity reinforces the necessity to work as a team with common values, expectations and behaviour and, at the same time, this is easily and effectively communicated to the students through lessons and tutorial work.

For the current academic year 2019-2020, please see the structure below.
