Year Tutors are senior members ofstaff who are responsible for the individual and collective needs of pupils ineach year group. The experience andexpertise of these teachers is a central feature of the carefully plannedcounselling and advice service which is available to all pupils throughouttheir school career.
In the event of problems ordifficulties, pupils should consult immediately with the most
relevant member of staff, i.e. SubjectTeacher, Registration Teacher or Year Tutor. The
Principal and Vice-Principal are alsoreadily available for consultation and assistance.
Every effort is made tomaintain close contact with parents, who should not hesitate to get in touchwith the Principal on any matter affecting the welfare, progress or developmentof their children. It is more convenientif appointments are made by telephone; appointments can be arranged duringschool hours or at other times.
Consultations can be madewith other relevant members of staff through the Principal as and when they areneeded.
Meetings with parents areorganised on several occasions during the school year. These are usually for the parents of studentsin individual year groups but from time to time meetings may be on a widerbasis.
Other interviews of apersonal nature may be held with parents and/or pupils to discuss
progress or matters ofconcern. These can be initiated byeither the school or the parent.
We wish to maintain the excellenthome-school communication that exists at present and if a parent is concernedabout any aspect of their child’s education or welfare they should contact theschool office and an appointment will be arranged.
