Role of the Form Tutor

 

The form tutor is the first point of contact for learners and parents. The form tutor meets learners in the morning and will provide or collect any information that is needed and monitor learners’ attendance and punctuality. They will also ensure that all learners are properly equipped and wearing the full uniform, and will promote the ASPIRE values. This allows all learners to start and end their academic day successfully.

Form Time/PSHE Curriculum

 

Form Time is a period of the day when learners will be updated on any important information they need, their uniform and equipment will be checked and any conversations can take place regarding progress in lesson, and attendance and punctuality. PHSE is a vital part of learners’ education and in the PHSE curriculum learners will cover topics that will impact on their personal, social and health development. Topics include how the election system works, what taxes are for, what political parties stand for, healthy eating, bullying and peer pressure, and managing emotions.

Home Learning

 

Learners in Year 7 will be expected to complete homework from each of their subjects on a weekly basis. Their subject teachers will set deadlines for each individual piece of work.

Enrichment Sessions

 

Learners are encouraged to attend afterschool sessions which are offered to them across the curriculum. We also encourage learners to take part in extra-curricular activities in a variety of subjects. They are also encouraged to engage with the Pledges, as research shows that children who attend extra-curricular opportunities tend to be more successful.

Further Enrichment Opportunities

 

Throughout the year a variety of enrichment opportunities take place. Learners have the opportunity to become a transition leader and develop their leadership skills during the summer half term as year 6's visit the school for their transition days. As a year group we also hold events throughout the year to raise money for our chosen charity.
