Achievement and Wellbeing Team
The Achievement and Wellbeing Team works to secure the most effective way of ensuring all our pupils meet, or ideally exceed their academic targets, whilst also offering the appropriate care, guidance and support.
Heads of Year
There is a Head of Year for each year group whose role is to closely analyse each child’s academic achievements and to intervene where necessary.
They are in regular contact with teachers to identify areas to concentrate on and employ swift action to remove any barriers to learning. They are also responsible for the wellbeing of every student within their year group.
The Heads of Year for each year group are:
- Year 7 Mr Makin
- Year 8 Mr Sumner
- Year 9 Miss Mitchell
- Year 10 Mrs Melling
- Year 11 Mrs Healy
The Assistant Heads of Year for each year group are:
- Year 7 Mr Harrison
- Year 8 Mrs Cunningham
- Year 9 Ms Davies
- Year 10 Ms Purkhardt
- Year 11 Mr Ali
We also have a Leader of Inspire for students. Staff work with specific groups of students who require a bespoke approach to the curriculum in our specially designed provision.
- Mrs Collinge is our Leader of Inspire, supported by Mrs Harrop our Inspire Coordinator.
All students have an academic tutor.
Academic tutors are responsible for a group of students within the year group. They are the daily point of contact with the student and will register students as well as offering appropriate pastoral and academic support. Academic tutors also deliver relevant SMSC sessions (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural) in the weekly extended tutor period.
Attainment and Achievement Co-ordinators
These staff members support the Heads of Year in monitoring pupil progress against their targets which are based on prior performance.
They are available to support both you and your child on their learning journey throughout their time at North Chadderton School.
