The Pastoral and Personal Enrichment Programme (PPEP)
The PPEP is a bespoke programme of tutorial meetings and group activities designed to meet the pastoral and personal enrichment needs of students in a maths school. The programme will be delivered through:
- Weekly meetings of tutorial groups of students with Pastoral Tutors, featuring sessions in a planned structure across the year and delivered by school staff and visiting speakers.
- Whole cohort opportunities after school and during the day including extracurricular sports activities, healthy cooking opportunities, and cultural activities such as art gallery, theatre and concert visits. These will feature a programme of discussion and group-work activities that focus students’ attention on the things they need to know as a part of the programme and foster the development of the school’s intended ethos and community character.
- Fortnightly one to one tutorial meetings between each individual student and their Pastoral Tutor. These will ensure that students are closely monitored and have an opportunity to discuss any concerns they have and request individual support with personal, academic or career issues. In these meetings tutors will monitor students’ academic performance, personal development including their progress in reading, their communication skills and their time-management and team working skills Form, and attend, lunch time clubs.
