All pupils have a Tutor who is responsible for the academic and pastoral welfare of those in their care. To begin with this will usually be the person who teaches them most often. The Tutor is the first point of contact for pupils and their parents, and is therefore the linchpin in the crucial three-way relationship between pupil, parent and school. Tutors monitor and sign pupil diaries on a daily basis providing a regular and important line of contact with parents.
