Pastoral Support

Role of the Progress Leader

The progress leader supports the work of the form tutors and is attached to a year group. They co-ordinate the work of the form tutors to ensure there is a consistent approach throughout the college. The progress leaders are, in turn, supported by the head of progress leaders and the deputy principal and they will become involved in any situation which requires the experience of the most senior members of staff in the college.

Role of the Form Tutor

We want all our pupils to feel that they are known, cared for and are valued members of our community. We want them to know that they have someone who can deal with their worries and concerns, no matter how large or small. All pupils are in the care of a form tutor, who is the key person in the college’s pastoral care system. The form teacher is supported by one or more assistant form tutors. The form teacher and assistant see the form twice each day and they are the first point of contact for pupils. The form tutor monitors each pupil’s academic progress, attendance, punctuality and general wellbeing and development throughout the year.

Primary Transition

We believe it is extremely important that all our new pupils feel happy and confident about starting their secondary college life. Throughout the academic year there is regular contact with all our partner primary schools following an excellent transition programme. Teachers from the primary schools and from St Antony’s liaise closely to ensure a smooth transition between schools and to allow year 6 pupils to familiarise themselves with the staff and structure of their new school. Throughout the academic year, there are many opportunities to visit our Catholic College.
