Academic Tutoring is about making the idea of 'high expectation' a reality for each student. To achieve this, there must be someone who knows, motivates, supports and praises the student; this person generally being the tutor. A good academic mentoring policy will also involve other key staff for identified individual students, notably pastoral managers and the Senior Leadership Team.
The Academic Tutoring Day has been designed to provide parents/carers and students with the opportunity to have a meaningful discussion about the progress being made in various subjects. The discussion will also include how, by setting targets for improvement and working out an action plan, they may improve and eventually achieve their maximum potential, and how parent/carers may have a role in this.
We have 3 Academic Tutoring days on:
Tuesday 27 January 2015 - for 7 Atlas & 7 Castor (reply slip)
Wednesday 28 January 2015 - for 7 Deneb & 7 Mizar (reply slip)
Thursday 29 January 2015 - For 7 Rigel & 7 Sirius (reply slip)
To confirm your attendance, could parents/carers please fill in the attached reply slips (see above) for their son/or daughter's revelant registration group and return it to The Academy by Monday 19 Janurary.
We appreciated that many parents/carers have work commitments during the day, therefore appointments can be made with form tutors from 8am to 6.40pm. Each appointment will last twenty minutes, enabling form tutors to comment on progress in all subjects.
Students will attend normal lessons during Academic Turoring Day. Students will be expected to accompany parents/carers to the appointment, and will leave lessons five minutes early before the appointment time booked with their form tutor. If, for some reason, parents/carers are not able to attend on the day, students are still required to make an appointment themselves to meet with their form tutors.
