Student Support

Student Support

At Caludon Castle we understand the need for quality care, guidance and support as the welfare of our students is of paramount importance to us. We have strong systems designed to provide a caring and disciplined environment which supports students to excel in all areas of their learning, developing into responsible and active citizens.

All year groups have a Year Leader, member of the Senior Leadership Team and Leadership Team dedicated to their care and support. In addition each year group has two Year Student Support Mentors who have a caseload of students who require further intervention for literacy and/or numeracy as well as motivating all students and giving them strategies and aspirations.

In Years 7 – 11 students are organised into 9 tutor groups. The mentor meets them four times a week.

Each day has a different focus:

  • Literacy/numeracy
  • Current affairs
  • ACHIEVE
  • ACHIEVE

The ACHIEVE programme consists of teaching the students to have:

  • Aspirations
  • Careers Advice
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Involving them in understanding the Environment
  • Values
  • Emotional Intelligence

They also attend a whole Year assembly once a week.

Students have the opportunity to have 1-1 session with their tutor, a student support mentor or a member of the leadership team every half term. This may be to discuss their progress, ATL grading or specific subject issues.
