King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy is committed to creating an environment in which students are both valued and supported. Whilst all staff are responsible for the well-being of students, we have key staff who lead on taking responsibility for students' well-being. All students are placed in one of four Houses - Parkes, Tolkien, Lloyd and Walters.

We work with primary schools to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary. Pastoral managers also play a key part in the personal development of students. Pastoral managers are a key point of contact for students and families.

Form and Personal Tutor

All students are placed into a form group and allocated a form tutor. The form tutor will meet students on a daily basis and play a key role in supporting their well-being. Additional support is also provided by the school nurse. Personal tutor's meet with their students once a week. Each personal tutor is assigned a group of students from each year group, providing opportunity for elder students and younger students to interact.
