Role of the Form Tutor

The form tutor is a vital part of student’s life at Rayner Stephens. Learners have daily contact with their Form Tutor, this allows Tutors to monitor the progress of their learners in all aspects of school life. Form Tutors are there to help and support learners and are the first point of contact for parents.

Form Time/PSHE Curriculum

Learners attend form each morning for 15 minutes. They will have daily activities that include; Literacy, Mathematics and Current Affairs / Citizenship. Assemblies take place every Wednesday morning and are delivered by SLT, Mr Cleverley or an external speaker. Once every two weeks the form group will complete a PSHE session, these lessons are planned to help young people develop fully as individuals, as members of families, social and economic communities.
