|Students and parents in each year group have access to a full-time Year Leader and a Student Support Officer for the stage. These members of staff work alongside each other in each of the stages. |
On the “K” site, for example, a new Student Support Area has been established where students will find the Assistant Headteacher responsible for the key stage, the Stage Leader, Year Leaders and the Student Support Officer all working together in the same integrated group of offices. This arrangement already exists in the sixth form and we have got closer to it on the “T” site as well.
There are new arrangements for support in class too – with a new emphasis on teachers providing support, a range of specialist posts and faculty based Curriculum Associates developing specialist knowledge in their own areas and being able to bring that to the support both of statemented students and of those in the mainstream.
