Firstly, I would like to thank all of this year group for the memories of your first year at The Warren School. Year 7 was a strange and exciting year for all of us, yet filled with lots of success and achievement. Now it is our responsibility to maintain and surpass these high standards set.
I am absolutely thrilled to be starting the new academic year as Achievement Team Leader for Year 8. This is the start of a new and exciting journey for us all and I have high expectations about what can be achieved over the next six years. Year 8 is an opportunity for a fresh start and the chance for students to become the type of learner and young person that they want to be.
There are various points of contact in the school for Year 8, beginning with their Form Tutor. Form Tutors are seen daily, have an overview of pupils learning and are able to offer advice and guidance. The team of tutors are overseen by myself as Achievement Team Leader and I am responsible for the learning and achievement of the year group. I will be supported by Miss Keith-Young, Year Care Team for Year 8, and she will be responsible for the students’ welfare; she is available to help students and parents/carers with any concerns they have.
A successful second year relies on team work between the School, student and parent/carer; we need to support each other to see this success happen. We have clear guidelines in place to help the development and raising attainment of our students. With your help and assistance, we can continue this positive trend, ensuring that homework is completed regularly, school diaries are signed and checked by parents and tutors every week and that students take full advantage of all the after-school activities we have available at The Warren School.
Remember, ‘Be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.’
Achievement Team Leader for Year 8
