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 can be found in the Guidance Team Leaders and Form Tutors download on the right of this page. 

Form tutors can be contacted by e-mail, by telephoning the school or by letter and 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/carer.    

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 Headteacher, Mrs Darling, oversees Key Stage 3 pastoral care and Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Salt, oversees Key Stage 4. They both report directly to the Headteacher. 

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/ Carer Portal, SIMS. You can access this by clicking here or via the menu to the left of this page, where you will also find instructions for using Cloud School.

If you require log in details for SIMS, or you are having trouble logging on, please contact Miss Casey by email or call 01260 730123.
