The Transition process is just the start of the support your child will receive at Cwmbran High School. Once they start in Year 7 the support and partnership with parents continues. Every student is placed in a Form Group and the Form Tutor will get to know every student and will be their first point of contact for advice and support.

In addition to their Form Tutor & Deputy Head of Year, the Head of Year is there to support students. The principle role of the Head of Year is to closely monitor and analyse the academic progress of every child and oversee the implementation of strategies to reward or support students where necessary. This process occurs every half-term and pupils receive high quality feedback and improvement targets from subject teachers and Form Tutors on each occasion. This ensures that every child is fully supported and involved in achieving their full potential, particularly at such a vital time in their education.

As mentioned above, a key role of Form Tutors, Deputy Head of Year and the Head of Year is to reward students on a regular basis and in a meaningful way. Some of the activities planned throughout the year to reward students are:

Term

Credit shop – pupils can exchange their hard earned credits for stationary and treats

End of Term Reward. All pupils who have earned reward enjoy festive activities with their Form Tutor before the whole school gather to celebrate the achievement of every learner in the school.

Form attendance reward. The form with the highest attendance at the end of each half term receives a special gift.

Form attendance reward. The form with the highest attendance at the end of each half term receives a special gift.

Summer

Reward trip. Pupils who have earned reward have the opportunity to go on a trip to spend some quality time with their peers and the Form Tutors who have worked so hard to support them throughout the year.

In addition to these whole year strategies and activities, the Head of Year  works very closely with individual students and parents/carers to ensure all students are able to meet their full potential. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your child’s individual circumstances, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Haynes.
