What is your advice about? Form tutor role
1: Make sure you know all their names very quickly. Find out something unique about each tutee.
2: Provide a safe environment where they they can come talk to you about anything, especially Year 7 or Year 11 – these are the tough years.
3: Make sure you read all the notices out as other teachers get cross if you don’t.
4: Get to know the parents as they will support you when things are tough. But make sure you also call them when things are good for your tutees as well.
5: Celebrate all their successes both inside and outside school. Foster a sense of belonging, pride and team work.
