Character and Culture – Period 4 Programme

At Newland School for Girls we have changed the structure of the tutorial programme, reverting back to a linear year group system.  Each tutor groups consists of students from the same year, but from across all four Houses.   These changes have enable us to create a bespoke PSHE and Careers programme, that will focus on character developments, requiring our young learners with essential skills for life.

Character Development – Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Tutor time occurs before lunch during period 4 for 25 minutes weekly.  SMSC will drive the tutorial programme for three days of the week, with tutors delivering a bespoke Character development and Careers programme of study.

PiXL Edge programme will be delivered by tutors throughout the year; designed to help students demonstrate five key attributes desired by employers (LORIC):

  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Resilience
  • Initiative
  • Communication

Careers programme is delivered through P4 lessons across a half term; bespoke lessons for each year group with focusing developing a greater awareness of self, career pathways and planning for the future.

 

Mentoring – Monday and Friday

Whilst half of the tutor group reside with their HOH in assembly, the tutor has some quality time to spend with their tutees, monitoring attendance, referrals, achievement points and the use of their planner.   Each half term, the tutor will also help their tutees to set SMART targets to ensure that each student’s remains focused on achieving their greatest potential.
