About life here at West Coventry Academy


Pastoral System

We take great pride in our effective pastoral system which has been highlighted by OFSTED as one of our strengths. Students meet in their tutor groups every morning for 15 minutes during registration. Each year group is led by their Progress Leader, a teaching member of staff who monitors both academic progress and pastoral welfare. Each Progress Leader is assisted by a Pastoral Leader, a non-teaching member of staff who in most cases will be the first point of contact for parents if they need to get in touch with the school during the day.

Tutors, Progress and Pastoral Leaders stay with their year group from Year 8 up to Y11. In year 7 we have a static pastoral team in place which specialises in transition (See Joining the school / Year 6 Transition).
