Harrogate Grammar Sixth Form building - Nov 23

The Sixth Form

Monitoring progress

Student progress will be monitored very carefully in the Sixth Form to ensure all students achieve their very best.

Monitoring will be ongoing with students, subject teachers, tutors and the Sixth Form Leadership Team all fully involved and informed.  Students will discuss their progress with Teachers, Tutor/and or Student Support Manager on a regular basis.  We expect students to take responsibility for reflecting on their own performance, evaluation and setting targets for improvement.

In addition to this, there are six student reports in year 12 and four in year 13, including Progress and Attitude to Learning Grades published to parents/carers throughout the academic year where overall performance will be assessed.

If a student is having difficulty in any of their studies, or problems with time management, they are advised to discuss this at the earliest opportunity with a member of staff.  This may be their subject teacher, one of the Student Support Managers or another member of the Sixth Form Leadership Team.

If a student’s attitude to learning is unsatisfactory in any subject, contact will be made with home and a support strategy will be put in place.

High levels of effort and an excellent work ethic will be rewarded via email and praise points rewarded.

Maintaining high levels of academic productivity throughout the two years in Sixth Form is essential to maintaining progress in line with statistical targets.

Parents and students have access to Arbor so that they can monitor performance.

Working as a team

We encourage every student to work to the best of their ability and aim high academically.  We also emphasise the importance of building key skills to support progression to Higher Education, training or a chosen career. Close liaison between Faculties, the Sixth Form Team, student and home can trigger tailored support. Intervention, managed by the Sixth Form Team, will be communicated home and regular contact is encouraged in the form of meetings, phone calls and email.  Please contact the Student Support Manager with any queries straight away, however small, so that we can prevent small issues becoming bigger problems.
