At Hadleigh we place great emphasis on the quality of pastoral care given to our students and maintain very close transition links with our partner primary schools.
Hadleigh High School operates a year structure. The Year Leader will oversee the induction of your child into school, and oversee your child’s progress during their time at Hadleigh High School.
Each student will be allocated to a tutor group. Morning registration will take place within these groups and nearly all lessons in Year 7 are given within these groupings. Each tutor group will have a tutor base, a room in the school where registration takes place and where the pupil can feel a sense of permanence. The major difference for your child will be that the tutor group moves around the school to where lessons take place. The tutor group will participate in assemblies during the course of the week.
The form tutor is a key member of staff whom you should get to know. This person will carefully monitor your child’s development, offering guidance and counseling when necessary.
It is to the tutor that you should turn if you need to contact the school regarding your child. The Year Leader will not necessarily be involved in routine matters, but will be kept informed at all times.
Apart from the normal range of lessons there will be an array of extra-curricular activities of a sporting, social and fundraising nature. We would hope to see as many students involved as possible and we encourage every year 7 to join at least one club.
Form tutors play a vital role in ensuring that we know each child as an individual and are able to encourage each of them to succeed. Parents/carers receive regular feedback in the form of reports, consultation evenings and progress checks throughout the academic year. If you have any concerns about your child, the following procedure is in place:
Contact 1—Tutor or Subject Teacher
Contact 2—Head/Assistant Head of Lower/Upper School
Contact 3—Member of School Leadership Team
