What is your advice about? Making your Form a great place

  1. Try and find at least one thing about each pupil that is non school related. Pupils want to feel like you care and want to know them as individuals.
  2. A positive note on a post it once a term, individual to that pupil goes a long way in making pupils feel valued.
  3. Notice the small details. A compliment on a new hair cut can really make a pupil’s day.
  4. If you feel comfortable with it, share what you find interesting. This is a great opportunity to expose pupils to a world outside the curriculum, if you are passionate this spreads.
  5. Build a team spirit, encourage pupils to support each other, get involved and most importantly smile every Form time (even if it is the last Monday of the half term).
