Each class has a form tutor who, in most instances, moves up with the class as they progress through the school. This enables a long-lasting relationship to form between the Form tutor and the students. This means that the Form tutor has a good idea of the student’s development and also that students feel comfortable to approach their Form tutor with any issues.
In the first instance the Form Tutor deals with welfare or behavioural problems. Depending on the nature of the problem the Form Tutor may wish to discuss it with the senior teacher (pastoral care) or behaviour co-ordinator; she in turn may refer it to the Headteacher who will then deal with it accordingly.
