    • As the new Year 7s to Eckington School they will undoubtedly be learning a whole host of new things and new experiences, whilst being the trailblazers and pioneers for many new developments within our school.
    • With all this comes a new way of working, mirrored by many new and exciting activities designed to make the start at Eckington as stimulating as possible.
    • Throughout the year students will be rewarded for their attitude to learning in lessons, high attendance and your achievements in the different subjects. All of which culminate in the form of an end of year Reward Trip.

    The Leader of Student Development is supported by the Pastoral Assistant for the year group, together with a team of tutors.

    The year team looks to create open communication links between parents/carers, teaching and support staff and, where necessary, liaising with outside agencies, enabling students to feel safe, secure and most importantly supported with whatever life throws at them. Our aim is to offer emotional, behavioural and academic support to those who require it and we are proud of the close working relationship we have with parents and students.

    We look to enhance student self-esteem and well-being by motivation supported by praise, encouragement and reward. The majority of this will be regular and informal with the Year Team taking every opportunity to highlight positive feedback.

    We look to monitor behaviour, academic ability and attendance closely and we celebrate student, team and group success, both inside and outside the classroom, on a termly basis.

    Celebrating student success in all areas of school life is also very important  and they want the students’ time at Eckington School to be as successful as possible.
