What support is given to students in school?

House System & Tutor Group

Within each year group there are six tutor groups, each with a Form Tutor, each tutor group belongs to a particular house. When a student is placed into a House in Year 7 she always remains a member of this house throughout her school life at St. Anne’s. Each House has a Head of house who is responsible for the community spirit within each house.

Achievement Leaders

Each year group has their own Achievement Leader who links in with the form tutors, heads of houses and is supported by the Strategic Leadership Team. The support structure has been developed to ensure maximum personal attention to help the students achieve their best.

Inclusion Team

The students who need extra support, encouragement and guidance benefit from a range of services and support staff in school.

The school has an Inclusion Manager & Deputy Inclusion Manager, dedicated to those students who need extra support. The Inclusion Manager & Deputy Inclusion Manager are both supported by the Behaviour Manager along with Learning Mentors and Academic Mentor on both sites.

We also use external services: Educational Psychology Service, Speech and Language Therapy Service, Behaviour Support Service, CAMHs, Education Welfare Service and the Catholic Childrens Society Counselling Service.

Students are also given extra help and guidance by our Gifted and Talented & Careers Co-ordinator who provides support and arranges activities and visits.

Student Leadership

Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour and learning. They can become Prefects, Monitors, Class Representatives and take on other responsibilities in the school. The School Council, chaired by the our Director for Vocational Studies & Student Voice, contributes to the development and life of the school.
