Head of Year: Miss H.Bramley
Vision for Year 7:
At Our Lady's we aim to create a warm, positive environment in which pupils feel safe and enjoy their learning. In the first year of a pupil's journey at our school, we have the same high expectations and standards as those in their final year of study at Our Lady's. These are the traditional standards of uniform, presentation and respect. This ensures that all pupils have the ability to reach their full potential in a purposeful environment where students make good progress.
My aim is to support the growth of the whole child; ensuring that every child is happy, healthy and academically stimulated. In achieving this aim, we support students in becoming responsible, independent and resilient individuals who have a range of skills which will serve them well in their future studies and lives.
Year 7 is vital in building strong rapports with peers and staff and to establish the structures and routines that will help us to be successful during our academic lives. Outside of the classroom, there are opportunities for students to flourish and celebrate their gifts and talents. The numerous clubs and extra-curricular activities on offer provide pupils with the platform to display their skills as well as helping them to discover new talents and interests. We acknowledge and celebrate the positive behaviours and hard work our pupils display and do so throughout each school year in the form of recognition, prizes and rewards.
I am eager to work closely with parents, guardians and families to ensure that each child receives the support they need to develop academically, personally and emotionally. I look forward to sharing this exciting, new journey with you all and it is together that we can do so much.
Top Priorities for Year 7
- For each pupil and parent to feel integrated within the school community.
- To develop and support the growth of the whole child.
- To embrace a fresh start which is full of opportunities.
