Care, Support & Guidance
At Perry Beeches III, we believe effective Pastoral Care is an essential support for student learning and development, as a result every member of staff has some degree of pastoral responsibility as outlined above.
The Pastoral Care of our students begins after they have accepted a place in our Year 7 but before they start in September. From the July before the students start they have the opportunity to take part in the following:
- INDUCTION DAY AND EVENING IN JULY BEFORE THEY START IN SEPTEMBER
- SUMMER SCHOOL FOR ONE WEEK DURING THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS BEFORE THEY START. THIS IS RUN BY PERRY BEECHES STAFF FREE OF CHARGE AND OPEN FOR ALL STUDENTS DUE TO START IN SEPTEMBER.
- INDUCTION INTO YEAR 7 IN SEPTEMBER WHERE YEAR 7 AND YEAR 10 ARE THE ONLY YEAR GROUPS IN SCHOOL FOR ONE DAY. YEAR 7 SPEND TIME WITH THEIR FORM TUTOR THROUGHOUT THIS DAY IN ORDER TO SETTLE THEM IN AND GRADUATE THEIR START.
Perry Beeches III has students aged from 11 – 15, each year group has 4 Form Groups with approximately 30 students in each Form. Registration occurs both in the mornings and afternoons, during morning registration there is a structured timetable of activities that support the SMSC and also PSHE and Citizenship. Each week there is a different theme of the week which runs alongside the different celebrations and events that happen throughout the year.
PSHE AND CITIZENSHIP
PSHE and Citizenship are taught to all year groups by the Form Tutors and where appropriate outside agencies are brought in to deliver session to the students. The themes and topics covered are all relevant to the Year Group to enable students to have access to the information they need at the appropriate times in their lives. The scheme of work offers progression year on year through the delivery of the topics. The delivery of PSHE and Citizenship is supported through registration activities and assemblies. Please see the scheme of work for a more detailed outline of the topics covered throughout the year.
We believe rewards and praise are central to creating a positive ethos within the school. A range of methods are used to reward our students including:
- MERITS (ACADEMIC AND PASTORAL)
- HEAD TEACHERS AWARDS
- END OF TERM TRIPS
- REWARDS ASSEMBLIES
