Role of the Form Tutor
The form tutor is a vital part of student’s life at Longdendale High School. Students have daily contact with their Form Tutor, this allows Tutors to monitor the progress of their students in all aspects of school life. Form Tutors are there to help and support students and are the first point of contact for parents.
Form Time/PSHE Curriculum
Students attend form each morning for 25 minutes. They will have daily activities that include; Literacy, Mathematics, Current Affairs and DEAR (Drop everything and read). Once every two weeks the form group will complete a PSHE session, these lessons are planned to help young people develop fully as individuals, as members of families, social and economic communities.
Students will complete home learning tasks for a specific date which will be set by their subject teachers. In core subjects, home learning tasks will be set once a week whereas in other subjects, home learning tasks will be set once a fortnight.
Students are encouraged to attend afterschool sessions which are offered to them across the curriculum. We also encourage students to take part in extra-curricular activities in a variety of subjects.
Throughout the year a variety of enrichment opportunities take place. Students have the opportunity to become a transition leader and develop their leadership skills during the summer half term as year 6s visit the school for their transition days. As a year group we also hold events throughout the year to raise money for our chosen charity.
