Student Support

Who Does what?

Learning Tutors

These are the staff our students see every afternoon during a Student Support Period (SSP). They take registers, check uniform and equipment and ensure our students are well prepared to start their day of learning.

The Learning tutors follow a weekly Tutor Activity program which includes reading, current affairs issues, attendance and progress checks and a half termly tutor challenge. This half term, the tutor challenge is based on charity work.

Year Managers

The key role of our year managers is to support our students in their behaviour, attendance and welfare. They do not have a teaching timetable and are accessible to our students throughout the Academy day. As they stay with their year group from Year 8 through to Year 11 they are experts on these students and as such gain a huge amount of important information on them which in turn allows them to reach their full potential.

Achievement Leaders

Achievement Leaders are responsible of the progress and welfare of all of the students in their year group. They work hand in hand with Year Managers to support the wellbeing of all children in their year group. They continually monitor the progress and attainment of every student and will look to work with all to help achieve their targets and aspirations. They celebrate success through contact home, certificates and other rewards and where necessary coordinate the involvement of other staff and outside agencies to support learning.
