Secondary Pastoral Support and Process

Teaching and Learning Support Assistants support students and teachers throughout the day and during lesson times. ·        

Teachers teach and support students during lessons and for specific subject support.·        

Form Tutors supervise their own form group, students are expected to register with their Form Tutor each morning. During form time their Form Tutor will share information about a variety of topics and diary events. They are the first point of contact via the Student Planners.·        

Year Leaders provide pastoral support for the whole year group. They do not have a teaching timetable, so they are always on hand to deal with any issues. Through form times and assemblies they play a key role in promoting the Academy's value and IAMBSCA.·
