Term Definition
horizontal

in educational management an arrangement which deals with learners of similar status such as in terms of age/stage: for example dealing with all of the one yeargroup rather than involving individuals from different year groups. A vertical pastoral system would mean a teacher dealing with learners from different stages of school whereas in a horizontal system the teacher would only deal with those from the one yeargroup.
