Support & Advice
In Year 11, the pastoral team’s aims are to:
Strategies to Improve Attainment
Option Shifts – Pupils at risk of underachieving have been identified and targeted for additional support during curriculum time.
Fortnightly progress meetings – Involving the Headteacher, Deputy Heads, Assistant Heads and English, Maths and Science Tic’s. The objective is to maintain a dialogue concerning pupil progress.
Tutor Mentoring – In groups of 4, underachieving pupils are assigned to one teacher to engage in learning conversations. This takes place over the course of the academic year.
Study Support – Pupils are targeted for after school support and their attendance monitored.
Academic Review - All pupils have the opportunity to review their progress by looking at tracking information. This information is used to develop SMART targets that will feed into their own Progress document.
All students in Year 11 have a meeting with a Careers Advisor where their future interests are considered and an action plan developed. There are opportunities to visit colleges, receive advice and develop a CV throughout the year. Also the school work around developing the employability of the cohort in various focused sessions.
