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:

  • Year 7 Miss Crawford
  • Year 8 Mr Fletcher
  • Year 9 Mr Sumner
  • Year 10 Mrs Melling
  • Year 11 Miss Mitchell
  • Year 12/13 Mrs Guy

The Assistant Heads of Year:

  • Year 7 Mrs Cunningham
  • Year 8 Mr Harrison
  • Year 9 Mrs Potts 
  • Year 10 Mrs Purkhardt
  • Year 11 Mr Ali
  • Year 12/13 Mrs Hilton

Academic Tutors

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 should be the first point of contact should parents need to get in touch with the school.

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.
