At Alec Hunter all students are allocated to a tutor group on entry. The tutor remains with the group as they move through the school and should be the main point of contact for most pastoral issues. Tutors see all students every day to address any issue. They also hold regular time tabled mentoring sessions to check on any problems and to support them with their learning.
A non teaching Student Support Leader leads the year group and is responsible for monitoring attendance, uniform as well as other pastoral and behavioural issues. These are supported by the Progress and Standards Leader who checks each student is on track to meet their academic targets and supports the learning taking place in the classroom.
Both Student Support Leader and Progress and Standards Leader now remain with the year group as they move up through the school to ensure continuity.
