Advice and Counselling

Tuxford Academy has had a long tradition of outstanding pastoral care and it is undoubtedly a strength of the school. This was confirmed during the 2009 Ofsted inspection, and the one before that (in 2005).  

Key Principles

  • People and learning relationships should be placed at the heart of education at Tuxford
  • Every child should receive a high level of individual care and attention that will help them reach their true potential
  • Every child should have a strong sense of belonging and identity
  • No child should feel 'lost' in such a big school
  • The majority of Tuxford students come to us from small village schools; we want to continue that 'small school' feel that contributes so much to our ethos
