Keeping in Touch

Each student has an assigned Key Worker (a member of the Pastoral Team), they will contact parents/carers daily. Staff will also contact parents/carers to conduct a Key Working session with their child on a weekly basis. This will enable staff to set students targets and help keep them on track with students studies.

If you have any questions about school work or any support we can offer, please speak to your child’s Learning Coach/Assistant Learning Coach in the first instance.
