Head’s Blog 7th June 2019

One of the key pieces of feedback  I have received from parents and carers over the past two years is that more opportunities to meet with staff would be very beneficial.  Next year, we are introducing a system of ‘review meetings’ where pupils, parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet with form tutors to discuss progress in all aspects of school life and to set targets to move forward.  The review meetings  will be in addition to the traditional subject-based parent and carer evenings and will take place on two occasions throughout the year.

The form tutor is in a unique position in that they have a complete oversight of all aspects of provision for the pupils in the group. In a way, we wish to replicate the experience of primary school where the pupil, parent/carer and the one class teacher have such a productive relationship.   The type of conversation they can have in a review meeting will hopefully pull the whole of the experience at Brynteg together in one coherent package and place pupil wellbeing and happiness at the core.

Once again, this is a demonstrates the way in which we are looking forward at Brynteg.  We want all of our pupils to achieve to the best of their ability whilst at the same time enjoying every single moment of their time with us, the form tutor has a key role to play in this and the new review day model will help develop this further. More information will be available in the coming weeks.

Our photo of the week shows Benjamin and Ethan  who completed the 5K charity Race for Life on Sunday 2nd June raising £110.  Our pupils are quite brilliant!
