Tutor time

Year 11 – Will be looking at short-term planning the next 6 months.  We will have sessions lead by teachers on goal planning, skill building, preparing for exams with a focus on planning, the importance of rest, dealing with distractions, strategies for relaxing and resting and feeding your brain. We also have the pleasure of welcoming in the Self-Esteem Team into school to speak to students about managing stress and maintaining health. 

We anticipate that the day will be an enriching experience and an opportunity to broaden knowledge and investigate topics that are not usually explored during the constraints of the usual school day. 

If you are concerned about your child taking part in any of the above then there will be an alternative provision put in place.  Many thanks for your ongoing support – do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly should you wish to discuss or have any questions about the above.
