As a Head of Year, leading a team of Tutors and Year Team Assistants, we aim to teach our students to take responsibility. We encourage our students to develop a strong moral code and make informed judgements about what is right and wrong. Under our WE CARE ethos, we actively encourage respect and good behaviour and promote the importance of caring for others. Students are expected to play their part in our community and take pride in their own and other students’ achievements.
Students are made to feel welcome and safe and know that their problems are listened to and dealt with. They are taught the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through a series of assemblies, tutor group sessions and a PSHE programme, which helps students to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives, achieve well and contribute to society.
Routines are critical and we seek to promote excellence in all aspects of school life, including having high aspirations, excellent attendance and punctuality, and becoming resilient.
As a Head of Year, my team and I also recognise the importance of open communication between staff, students and parent/carers and are always ready to listen.
