The Form Tutor leads this initial stage of the process as they know their students well and should be aware of home, academic or personal issues that might impact on the student. As a result of tracking information provided by the Progress Leader (typically underachievement in 3 subjects) and/or the number of audits over a period of two weeks (5 negative audits), the Form Tutor will implement the process below:
Meeting between Form Tutor, student and if possible parents. If parents are not in attendance they need to be informed of the outcome. A “Student Profile Form” will be completed by the Form Tutor during this meeting and a summary of the meeting will be recorded on the Events Log in eportal.
The Form Tutor will email relevant teaching staff requesting details of subject based interventions/support plans. Throughout the process the subject teachers, in areas of underperformance, must implement relevant interventions and Curriculum Leaders will have an overview of this.
Form Tutor may make referral to Student Support Team for Light Touch Support Brief after discussion with the Progress Leader.
Student to be placed on Student Support Card ~ Form Tutor with agreed targets set by the Form Tutor. This card will run initially for two weeks with one of the following outcomes dependant on how the student engages with the process:
All targets are met and student performance is back on track ~ the student is taken out of the process
Targets are partially met and the student is engaging with the process ~ the process can be continued for a further two weeks for a maximum of six weeks in total.
The student is not engaging in the process and is making little if any progress towards meeting the set targets ~ the student is referred to the Progress Leader and SARC Stage 1 will be implemented.
The Form Tutor must ensure key events are summarised on the student Events section of eportal so that a support log is built up.
