Year 7

 Head of Year

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 4 times per year 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 Reward
Autumn Weekly prize draw – pupils nominated for Star of the Week or who have 100% positive behaviour during the week will be entered into the prize draw for a small gift.
End of Term Reward. All pupils who have earned reward are offered the opportunity to participate in a reward trip.
Attendance rewards. Pupils are presented with certificates for 100% attendance in that term and the form with the highest attendance is celebrated.
Spring Weekly prize draw – pupils nominated for Star of the Week or who have 100% positive behaviour during the week will be entered into the prize draw for a small gift.
End of Term Reward. All pupils who have earned reward are offered the opportunity to participate in a reward activity.
Attendance rewards. Pupils are presented with certificates for 100% attendance in that term and the form with the highest attendance is celebrated.
Summer Weekly prize draw – pupils nominated for Star of the Week or who have 100% positive behaviour during the week will be entered into the prize draw for a small gift.
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.
Attendance rewards. Pupils are presented with certificates for 100% attendance in that term and the form with the highest attendance is celebrated.

 

 

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.
