Support for students throughout their school career is provided by many people. The students first port of call is their tutor who will always be able to direct them to the appropriate person depending on their needs. Below is a brief description of all of the areas of support provided by the school.
The five Heads of Year jointly overview the learning and progress of all students. Emphasis is placed on actively maintaining standards, progress and targets in the short, medium and long term.
The team engages key staff such as the Student Support Manager (Behaviour and Attendance), form tutors, parents and carers. High expectations are implicit in fostering a good work ethic, positive engagement and positive achievement/attainment.
Heads of Year use data to track and monitor achievement and attainment of all students. Intervention strategies are planned and implemented accordingly.
