Di Scott - Assistant Principal, responsible for the pastoral department.
Our pastoral team are here to support students from when they begin with us in year 7 through to when they move on in year 9.
No two days are the same in the pastoral office, just as no two students are the same. During the school day, we support students and their families with attendance, uniform, friendship issues, behaviour, welfare and take care of the general well-being of students.
The pastoral team work closely with staff and parents to help to resolve any difficulties a student may face in school. For more complex issues and where more specialist help may be required, we have a network of outside agencies to offer support. We also help to support students with transition in year 7 and year 9.
We operate an open-door policy so students can come and talk to us at any time for friendly help and advice.

Wellbeing is a at the heart of student support at Ibstock Community College. We recognise that many students often struggle in silence with social, emotional or mental health worries.

From daily absence checks, family support, home visits and legal processes, the role of the Attendance Improvement Officer is crucial to ensuring our students are in school every day to access their learning. Should you need to contact our Attendance Improvement Officer for any query around your child’s attendance or punctuality, please contact Mrs Cobley on:

The school nurse will be running a weekly drop-in session on a Thursday lunchtime (12:20 to 13:10). The sessions will be held in the pastoral meeting room (next door to the pastoral office). Students do not need to make an appointment - if they wish to discuss any health related matter then they can pop in for a private discussion. Parents will only be contacted if there is cause for concern or if the student gives consent for the school nurse to contact parents.
The key message to all students having problems and difficulties, or simply looking for advice, is to let us know. We can only help and make a difference if we know there is a problem. Only then can we try to deal with it appropriately.
We appreciate discussing certain matters face-to-face with an adult can be tricky and uncomfortable so, if you feel you cannot talk directly to either your form tutor or pastoral manager, please CLICK HERE to send an email. This email is checked regularly by members of the pastoral team who will respond to you as soon as possible.
You can also use this service, if you would like to report any incidents of bullying, either to yourself or that you have witnessed around the college. Names are optional!
All incidents will be treated seriously and appropriate action will be taken.
If we don’t know, nothing can be done to help you and STOP it!
Our school is part of the Worth-It project which specialises in early intervention and prevention of mental health problems, through improving emotional health and resilience of children, adolescents and schools. The aim is to equip our students with skills for life to ensure they meet their full potential.
