How do we care for students?

Keeping in Touch

q       We aim to establish a partnership to promote the maximum achievement for all students.

 

q       We have established a number of ways of keeping you informed about your child’s progress in the School.

 

q       The Student journal

q       Parents’ evenings

q       Letters and phone calls where necessary

 

Assemblies

 Our Assemblies consider humanitarian and topical issues that concern everyone and, though largely based on Christian principles, are designed to value and not exclude any other faith.

Year System

 

Each year group has a Year Co-ordinator, who sees that the students’ day to day needs are met, maintains and overview of academic progress and ensures that proper standards of behaviour are maintained.

 

q       Each year is divided into Tutor Groups of around twenty-eight students.

q       The Tutor watches over and encourages progress, both in school work and in the wider context of growth to adulthood.

q       Where possible, tutors remain with their tutor group throughout the School.

 

Year and School Councils

 

As a way of encouraging responsibility in the School, Tutor Group representatives form a council, which meets to discuss matters affecting that Year Group.

 

The Year Councils each elect two of their members to the School Council whose role is to make Tamworth Manor an ever more effective school.

 

Student Journals

 

All students are provided with a Journal for communication between school and home, in which:

q       They are expected to record details of all homework.

q       It contains vital information a student needs to follow to be successful at Tamworth.

q       It is regularly checked by the Tutors

q       Details of any detentions are recorded as formal notification to Parents/Carers that the student will be detained after school.

 

Senior Students

Selected students in their final year are awarded the status of ‘Senior Students’ and take part in a programme of paired reading and ‘buddying’. Both activities are designed to support younger students in the school.
