Contacting your Child's Tutor
Every student has a form tutor, who has overall responsibility for the care, welfare and academic progress of all students in their tutor group. Your child’s tutor should always be your first point of contact at school and their name and e-mail address should be written in the front of your child’s student planner. Form tutors can be contacted by e-mail, by telephoning the school, by letter or by a note in the student planner. The tutor will decide which member of staff is best suited to deal with your enquiry. He or she may deal with the matter directly or refer the matter to the Guidance Team Leader. By using this system of referral, the tutor will be at the centre of dealings with your child, thus fostering a strong relationship between tutor, student and parent/s.
Each year group also has a Guidance Team Leader who is responsible for overseeing the welfare, discipline and academic progress of students in their year group. He/she will deal with more serious matters. The Assistant Principal – Behaviour and Welfare, Mrs Gill Taylor, oversees all pastoral care and reports directly to the Executive Principal.
If you are concerned about the academic progress or pastoral welfare of your child please contact their tutor as outlined above to make an appointment to meet with them.
Our staff will strive to assist you with any enquiry in a timely manner (max. three working days) and you will be treated with respect and courtesy at all times. The school respectfully requests that you treat our staff in the same polite and courteous manner.
You can view a wide range of information regarding your child's school activity and performance, including timetables, behaviour and rewards and also update your contact details via our Parent Portal, Progresso.
