Queen Elizabeth’s Academy places great emphasis on providing a dedicated support system, which covers the pastoral system and assistance for special educational needs, to help our students achieve their full potential. The academy wants all students to feel safe and secure in their learning environment.
The academy’s pastoral system offers horizontal tutoring; meaning students receive tutoring in year groups, therefore allowing delivery of a bespoke programme. Each year group has a designated head of year; year 7 and year 11 also have an assistant head of year, primarily to support with transition and GCSE examinations.
At the academy, we value the relationship between the tutor and their tutees, as well as between tutors and parents. The tutor is the person to whom parents/carers and tutees should initially seek advice and support from.
Tutor groups meet daily and students and staff participate in a range of activities, including collective worship, assemblies, reading activities, work around a weekly focus and administrative tasks. In year 11, students concentrate on interventions, examination revision and techniques.
Our heads of year are as follows:
Head of year: Miss Brunt / Mr Scothern
Head of year: Miss Thomas
Head of year: Mrs Bland
Head of year: Mrs Taylor / Mrs Percival
Head of year: Mr Kuffour
