Luckley enjoys a reputation for high standards of pastoral care. All pupils have daily contact with their form tutor, who takes a close interest in their academic and social welfare. Regular meetings with the Deputy Head provide a forum for all staff to discuss the individual progress of each child.
Sixth Form students are also assigned to a form tutor who monitors their progress and gives them additional support necessary for the university application process and career choices. There is a specialist careers advisor and library.
Communicating with parents
Relationships with families are of uttermost importance and this is reflected in Luckley’s approach to communicating with parents. You will be welcomed into school to talk over any concerns which arise.
The School sends communication home with the pupils as well as using PARENTMAIL an email and text communication service, as well as Doddle, a progress tracking system.
Life Skills Programme
A comprehensive programme embracing citizenship and careers, along with personal, social and health education (PSHE) is part of the core curriculum for Years 7 to 11, timetabled as 4U. This is taught as a discrete subject with additional support from form tutors.
Outside speakers regularly complement the work of the Luckley staff. Sixth Form provision remains under the direction of the Head of Sixth Form with support from tutors.
