Student Welfare

The Sixth Form Pastoral System

Students will be assigned to a class teacher and student progress tutor (SPT). These two teachers are the first port of call should you have any worries or concerns both academically and pastorally. Your class teacher and SPT will play a central role in your life at the academy.

Class Teachers

A class teacher is the first person you meet every day at King Solomon Academy who plays a hugely supportive role in your time at sixth form. Their main roles are:

  • Meet in registration every day and assembly time
  • Gives out information and announcements regarding sixth form
  • Monitors attendance and punctuality
  • Takes PSHE sessions
  • Supports with sixth form life and making the transition to sixth form
  • Gives information and support on the university application (UCAS) process

Subject Progress Tutors

Student progress tutors (SPTs) monitor closely the academic achievement of their assigned students and are responsible for delivering a personalised programme of support to enable students to be successful academically. The SPTs are the two Deputy Heads of Sixth Form and Head of Sixth Form. Each week students will meet either in a small group or on a one-to-one basis with their SPT.

Sessions will be a combination of:

  • Mentality and attitude training
  • Study skills support
  • Progress reflection
  • Guidance on excelling academically
  • University preparation

SPTs will work closely with subject teachers to monitor student progress in subjects. After each tri weekly assessment cycle students will have time to reflect on their current attainment levels and set progress targets for their subjects.
