New Year Group Structure
Our Pupil Support structures are year group based since the key experiences of young people at secondary school – their curriculum and their assessment – are year-group based. Our system integrates pastoral care and support for learning in an attempt to provide a holistic approach to supporting individual pupils. Peer group issues which can impact on the progress of pupils are addressed by teams of Pupil Support Teachers within our year-group horizontal system. With a strong emphasis on pro-active methods which anticipate the support our pupils will require, the approaches adopted by our Pupil Support team acknowledge the fact that all young people need support some, if not all of the time, during their school career. The year group teams are comprised of the Depute Head Teacher (DHT), Principal Teacher Pupil Support (PT PS), Additional Support Needs (ASN) Teacher, Support for Learning Assistant(s) (SLA) and Form Class Tutors (FCT). As each year group moves up the school, the year group teams move up with them.
