While you are growing up, you will find that life is full of ups and downs, and sometimes you have a problem that you want to talk to someone about. Maybe it is something that is worrying you about school, or how you feel, or about how others feel about you.
At Cromer Campus you don’t have to feel all alone, because we have special people who you can always talk to (in private) about anything that is troubling you.
First, of course, is your Year Advisor. Year Advisors are available to offer guidance and counsel to students requiring advice about welfare or pastoral care matters.
The Head Teacher Welfare oversees whole school welfare programs, coordinates the school Group Program and assists students interms of extra school support and pathway initaiatives.
Ms A Letnickand Mrs McTernan are our School Counsellors. It doesn't matter what the problem is, or how big it seems to you – the School Counsellor is someone you can trust, someone who can help you see things differently and sort out problems. Their door is open to you and your parents.
The Girls Welfare Coordinator and is available to provide support and advice to girls should they have particular issues or concerns to discuss. She is also available for career guidance and can assist with career pathway planning – it’s never too early to start!
The Deputy Principal responsible for each Year group is also available to discuss any welfare or curriculum issues a student may have.
What is a “Group”?
Students are placed into a roll call/group comprising other students from their year. Groups in years 7-10 meet at the start of each day. Years 11-12 meet once per week as well as participating in a mentor program with their group teacher.
Activities in roll call/group include:-
Marking the roll, reading school notices, discussing topics of importance and the
provision of care and guidance. Within each year group focus activities are also completed in areas including peer support in year 7, drop everything and read (DEAR), literacy, numeracy and technology.
The Role of the Group Teacher
Students are encouraged to establish a positive and trusting relationship with their Group Teacher, who will be easily accessible and approachable. Students who have a problem, or want advice or help, should seek out the Group Teacher in the first instance, especially if you want honest, useful advice. If you are having difficulties, see your Group Teacher before the problems get too big to handle.
The Group Teacher monitors the progress of the student through the Awards System and is also involved in monitoring and counselling students who are on levels in the discipline system.
This diary is an essential aid to improving your learning while at Cromer Campus. The habits you develop when using it regularly will help you become a more organised and productive learner.
The diary has been compiled both to provide you with important information about the school and to help you better organise your time, homework, assignments and study commitments. It also helps to develop the important partnership between the school and your parents to further improve learning.
You should have this diary at each lesson and record on the appropriate date when homework and assignments are set and due.
This diary may be viewed regularly by parents, teachers, Head Teachers and members of the Welfare Team to check that homework, assignments and other student work is recorded.
Ensure that all personal details and timetables are filled in.
Record all important dates and events on the appropriate pages and highlight them.
Make a list of everything you need to get done in a day – including all equipment that is required for your work. Cross them off your list in your Study Planner as soon as you complete them.
