Folkestone Academy Student Welfare & Behaviour

Student Welfare & Behaviour

Pastoral and academic support – development of the individual

The Academy runs from Year 7 through to Year 11 and every student has a Year base. These bases are run by a Head of Year supported by the year group team of progress leaders, learning mentors and tutors.

These dedicated teams are responsible for both the academic progress, pastoral welfare and development of each student. They care for our students from their very earliest transition experiences until they leave the Academy. These teams play an integral part in our student’s success, tracking their academic progress, attendance, behaviour and personal development. The year teams develop strong relationships with parents and carers, working together in the interest of the student. They are the first point of contact for parents and carers wanting to discuss any aspect of their child’s school life. Their goal is to ensure that every student fulfils their potential and feels valued as a member of our school community
