A form tutor’s role is central in both caring for students and, crucially, monitoring their progress both academically and socially; encouraging involvement, commitment, and high standards of work and behaviour.
Our form tutors not only monitor the official records of attendance and punctuality but set the “tone” for the day, by creating a positive ethos, encouraging good relationships within the school, and developing both a tutor group and a school identity.
Our form tutors encourage high standards of work, behaviour and dress in students, and liaise with other members of staff over referred behavioural problems. They look to reward achievements positively and implement, where necessary, appropriate sanctions.
Throughout the academic school year, tutors monitor and review their students’ current progress across the curriculum using all the data provided and follow through concerns and issues about learning and effort when necessary with subject areas and parents. Parents are kept fully involved regarding students’ progress, including curriculum related or behavioural concerns.
