Student Support KS3-Y8&Y9 Support

The Head of Key Stage 3 monitors the well being and academic progress of students in Years 8 and 9.

The Head of Key Stage 3 works closely with Form Tutors to ensure high standards of attendance, work, behaviour and dress of students in Years 8 and 9 in order to monitor the welfare, progress and conduct of students intervening where needed in the best interests of the student and her/his progress.

Throughout the Key Stage there is a continuing PSHE programme delivered through assemblies and individual lessons as and when needed throughout the year. Subjects covered include Poverty, Cultural Diversity and Ecological Sustainability.

We recognise the importance of working towards a smooth transition from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 for Year 9 students and to this end we conduct interviews with all Year 9 students to guide them through the KS4 Options programme.
