The role of guidance

Your Guidance Teacher will:

· be particularly interested in how you are getting on

· get to know you particularly well

· have time set aside to help you

· arrange to see you to discuss how you have settled in and how you are getting on

· make sure you know what is going on in the Academy and have any information you need

· take you for one period of tutor time each week during which you will follow a personal and social education programme

· be willing to give you help and advice

· help you choose the subjects you want to take in later years

· help you find out more about possible careers and help you arrange your Work Experience (see details here)

· be available to see your parents

· report to your parents on how you are getting on

Your guidance teacher will be a great help to you, not only when you join the Academy but throughout your time in the school. You will have the same principal teacher of guidance for all that time.
