Examples of topics:
“In working with young people, do not try to call them back to where they were, and do not call them to where you are, beautiful as that place may seem to you. You must have the courage to go with them to a place neither you nor they have been.”W. J. Donovan
Attend all lessons
Work consistently throughout the year
Summarise notes throughout the year (not just before exams)
Ask for help if you have a problem
Use study time in school productively
Work more at home
Organise folders and files
Do work as soon as it’s set
Too many distractions
Social Life needed to come second
Monday nights out effected performance in school all week.
Working too many hours in a part time job (especially in the run up to Christmas)
Too many demands - from parents, organisations, sport etc.
Give me space and quiet time
to work on my own.
Push me to study each night
Spend time with me and talk to me about my work.
Test me on topics.
Help me write my personal statement.
Make sure I have time to relax exercise and unwind.
The Form Tutor’s Mantra:
“I’m not going to
ask you to do
anything that I don’t
have to do!”
All unforeseen absences must be authorised by a note / phone call from home before if possible or before 10am on the day of absence
Phone : 01782 848008
Absence from Lessons
Dental/ medical appointments
Possible reasons why students may be absent from school/ lessons
Sickness on the morning of a school day
Sickness or injury during school day
Students are registered for all lessons
Once 15% of lessons have been missed in a three week period, students will have three weeks without free periods.
It is the responsibility of students to plan carefully to catch up on missed work
Students can request an itemised breakdown of their absences and speak to the Head of year to discuss these absences and the plans they have to catch up on work.
Punctuality to Assembly (8.35am Wednesdays) and Form time (8.45)is essential.
3 lates in a half term result in paying back an hour of extra study.
My To-Do List
When I’ll Do It
Timetabled study is not time in which to complete work set by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)Guidance on independent learning is accessed through the Network’s Shared Area (To be placed on VLE at a future date)The Independent Learning folder contains a separate folder for each AS course.
The Fideliter Building & School IT Network
Each course folder contains: by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)
It is additional – on top of homework.
The deadline is student set.
It is not assessed – even though teachers will draw on it and refer to it in future lessons.)
*How is this any different to homework?
*In the same way that the revision they did at GCSE
is different to homework they did during GCSE!!
Sixth Formers should
be working harder
than their Teachers!
4. by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)Make judgements about each student’s commitment to the Sixth Form Agreement.5. Speak on a 1:1 basis with students whom there is any negative feedback about and reward for positive feedback
AS Results Day: by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)
Students who did not get the DDD or points equivalent grades needed to get back into Year had what three things in common?
1. They did not make use of their planners correctly throughout the year.
2. They used their study sessions to do work set by the teacher (in the hope this meant they did not have to do anything at home!)
3. They had an attendance below 85%.
6. by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)Enrichment Activities in Year 1250 hours per year of extracurricular activities
It must include 12 hrs of service activity
Enrichment can be done at anytime during Free periods or after school or in the holidays
The time is now for them to do this!
Many Words by teachers. (i.e. NOT Homework!)One Pledge to Enrich
And how can we make sure that at least 12 hours of these activities enriches other people?
