Each year group at Eastbury is divided into ten tutor groups. The names of the tutor forms spell out the words STUDY and LEARN. (7S, 7T, 7U, 7D, 7Y and so on).
Your child will be placed in a mixed ability tutor form of approximately 30 students. These groups will be carefully organised to ensure that each has children of all abilities and from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures.
Your child’s tutor is your first point of contact if you have any concerns about your child’s achievement or welfare.
a) phoning the school and leaving a message for the tutor to contact you, or
b) writing a message in your child’s homework diary and asking your child to show this to their tutor as soon as possible.
The Organisation of the Curriculum
The total time spent on teaching each day is 5 hours (excluding break, lunchtime and registration times), totalling 25 hours per week.
Each Year Group is sub-divided into groups of 25 - 30 or less for teaching purposes. Students are grouped according to the needs of the individual subject with setting by ability predominating.
The placement of each individual student is regularly reviewed and is changed when appropriate.
