Year 9 Team

As Head of Year 9 my role is to ensure an effective pastoral care for each child within the Year Group. This may involve supporting pupils in their subjects in respect of SEN; overseeing behaviour; monitoring attendance and punctuality; and most importantly, making sure all pupils are safe and well to enable them to them to fulfil their potential both in education and personally.

I have high standards and expectations for all students. I expect behaviour within the year group to be impeccable, attendance to be at least 97% and punctuality excellent. For pupils to expand their horizons and their social skills I expect all students to attend at least one enrichment activity per week. The benefits being that pupils will learn new skills, make new friends and build in confidence.

With the support of my Assistant Head of Year Miss McKevitt and my team of Form Tutors we will ensure your child’s pastoral care is of the highest standard to make their time at OBA a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
