Here at Ibstock Community College, tutor time is an important opportunity to share key messages with students and build strong relationships that serve the whole school community. Your child's tutor will be there for them throughout their time here as their first port-of-call for support with any concerns or queries they may have.
As we fully appreciate the value that tutor time has, we have an extensive tutor time programme that is designed to develop relationships between staff and students, ensure students are aware of key information and provides the opportunity to further develop skills. Please see the links below for your child's tutor time programme.
Each year group will have Assembly once a week. The theme changes each week depending on events happening either in school or in the wider world. This is supplemented by a PSHE/ Tutor Talk activity once a week. If an Assembly is regarding a whole-school event, such as Remembrance, the PSHE/ Tutor Talk will follow this up. Other times, this activity will build on knowledge that students have gained in their PSHE lessons. Please see below details of our Assembly themes for this half-term.
In addition, all students take part in a school-wide Tutor Reading Programme, organised by Mrs. Hayles, once a week. KS3 students read a class text, whilst at KS4, students are exposed to various articles and extracts. The purpose of these sessions is to introduce students to texts, articles or genres they may not have come across before, to discuss key themes or issues, and develop their vocabulary by exploring new words. As a result, this aids the development of students' literacy, oracy and knowledge of the world around them.
Students also have the opportunity to keep track of their attendance (including punctuality), achievement and behaviour during one tutor session a week. We believe it is important for students, as well as their tutors and teachers, to be aware of these to ensure they are meeting the high expectations that the College has for every child. It is also an opportunity for tutors to speak with individual students and support them in succeeding and being the best that they can be'.
We believe that these daily sessions both support and enrich your child's learning here at Ibstock Community College and help us to build strong relationships with them to help them succeed.
