Pupil Support

Pupil Support

Balfron High School operates a pastoral system based upon three houses Campsie, Endrick and Lomond.  Each young person has a lead contact that will oversee their education and wellbeing.  The aims of the house system are –

  • Building strong partnerships between children, young people, their parents, carers and those who support their learning
  • A system for monitoring and reviewing progress and achievements at school level

The staged intervention system is part of a nationwide strategy to support young people with barriers to their learning.  At Balfron high School the staged intervention process supports young people with a barrier to learning by:

  • Early intervention and targeting of resources where most needed
  • Agreeing on a plan to help a young person reach their potential

Staged Intervention System Explained

 Stage Lead contact Reason Actions
0 Form Class Leader No barriers to learning. Form Class Leader monitors and reviews progress on a regular basis.
1 Home area PT Stage one identifies a young person that has a barrier to learning. The young person’s home area Principal Teacher will coordinate support with staff to overcome this barrier.
2 House PTPS Stage two identifies a young person that has a long term barrier to their learning and requires continual enhanced planning and support. The house PTPS will coordinate support with the house learning support teacher to meet the young person’s needs.  Parents and carers will be invited to an annual review to monitor the young person’s additional support needs.  At the review the young person may move to stage 1 or 3 as required.
3 PTSI At stage 3 the team around the child will have decided that the young person requires a higher level of support and/or targeted interventions. The PT Staged Intervention will regularly review a planned, targeted, individualised approach to identified aspects of the curriculum.  Other agencies may contribute to this and Team Around the Child (TAC) meetings held.  Parents and carers will be invited to two reviews each year to monitor the young person’s additional support needs.
4 PTSI Stage four identifies Additional Support Needs that are complex or multiple which have a very significant impact on their learning and wellbeing.  The PT Staged Intervention will regularly review a highly individualised and adapted curriculum.  Intensive planning and support may include flexible curriculum opportunities.  Parents and carers will be invited to two reviews each year to monitor the young person’s additional support needs.

 

 

At Balfron high School we believe that effective communication with parents leads to improved outcomes for our young people.  Parents are able to contact the lead contact to discuss all aspects of their child’s education.  Staff can be contacted at their email address (links at the top of the page) or a message can be left on 01360 440469.  Please remember that all of our lead contacts have teaching commitments and may not be available when you phone.  They will return the message as soon as they are able.
