Learning Leaders

A learning leader's role is to support a student’s academic achievement through the accurate use of data and a wide range of creative intervention strategies.

 

The Learning Leader role is relatively new to The North School and is an integral part of securing positive academic outcomes for the school. There are four Learning Leaders within the school who work within their community. Each Learning Leader is responsible for the academic progress of their community, from year 7 to year 11, using data and liaising with teachers to ensure all students are making appropriate progress. Due to the pressures of the GCSEs, the Learning Leaders work more extensively with years 10 and 11 to ensure all students are well prepared for their exams and are given the tools they require to succeed. To ensure students are well prepared as they journey through key stage 3, Learning Leaders liaise with tutors to identify any areas of concern and provide appropriate support. Learning Leaders provide and facilitate intervention for students and work with outside agencies to best support individuals with their studying needs. Learning Leaders also work with parents through 121 and whole group meetings to provide advice regarding exam pressures and approaches to revision.

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s academic progress, please feel free to contact the appropriate Learning Leader;

Mabledon Community: Miss K McNelis - McNelis.C@north.kent.sch.uk and Mr R Mackenzie - Mackenzie.R@north.kent.sch.uk

Essella Community: Miss V Benbow - Benbow.V@north.kent.sch.uk and Miss K Koselj - Koselj.K@north.kent.sch.uk

Whilst Learning Leaders will endeavour to respond to telephone calls during the day, please be aware that all the Learning Leaders teach a full time timetable, therefore, email is the best form of communication.
