Student Support

We have put together the following curriculum programme for year 11 students. It is a blended approach of virtual and in school support so that year 11s are ready for their next step. May I remind you that it is compulsory. In normal years, students would be in GCSE exams through June.

Every Monday, students will be emailed a Microsoft Form to register on. Using the form they may request a phone call from the year 11 support team. If they do not complete this form, then we will be phoning, visiting those year 11 students and contacting the local authorities so we meet our duty of care to year 11 students.

Some students will be invited in for a 1:1 career meeting. They will be contacted about that separately and given a time.

If colleges are doing physical tours then we will support that. Currently these are being done remotely, however, this may change.
