Head of C6 Student Support
Miss Hazel McKay
Deputy Head of C6 Student Support
Mr Matt Parry
Staff member first initial and surname @commonweal.co.uk
Each week, C6 Tutors have time with their registration group to get to know the students and provide messages, updates and advice on a range of topics relevant to this phase. Tutors will also set up 1:1 appointments with their tutees each term, to help ensure they feel properly supported and that any obstacles to progress are identified as quickly as possible.
In addition, Mrs McKay and Mr Parry work to support out students throughout their journey at C6. Alongside the C6 tutors, they are available to talk to and advise students about a range of issues relevant to this phase of education; transition to sixth form, appropriate course choices, academic progress and attendance, all aspects of safeguarding and well-being, as well as access to careers advice and routes to Higher Education and apprenticeships. Parents and carers are also welcome to contact our student support team about any concerns they may have regarding students’ wellbeing, progress or experience at our sixth form.
C6 Pastoral Support Worker
Mrs Tracy Rosser
We are extremely fortunate to have a dedicated pastoral and wellbeing support worker in our setting. Tracy has an office on our first floor which is open to students, from Monday to Thursday, for drop-ins throughout the day. In addition, she meets with students at pre-arranged times, convenient to their timetables, to discuss advice and support about a range of issues, from exam stress to mental health and wellbeing. Students can request a meeting in person, by email, or parents/carers are welcome to contact her in order to request this is offered. Tracy is very experienced at supporting young people but is not a trained counsellor and will endeavour to signpost students to specialist services for their age group whenever necessary. These are also provided in links below, for access at any time.
