Pastoral Care and 16-19 Bursary
Pastoral Care in the Sixth Form
At Chenderit, pastoral support is at the heart of everything we do. At the start of Year 12, each student is assigned to a tutor group and a specialist 16 – 19 form tutor who will help you develop the reflective skills you need to monitor your progress and ensure success throughout your time with us. Your tutor will also provide you with access to information, support and guidance as you decide on your career goals and develop as an adult ready to embark on your next steps. Your tutor is there not only to challenge you and support you, but also to help you learn the study and organisational skills that will stand you in good stead all your life. Your tutor will also be your first port of call for social and emotional support and their role is to ensure that you are happy, focussed and making progress.
We are also incredibly fortunate to have a dedicated study supervisor who is permanently based in the Sixth Form Study Centre. Mrs Smith works closely with all of our students to ensure they are developing the independent study skills that are required to secure success in their examinations, whilst also providing care, guidance and support to students who may need it.
The Sixth Form team work very closely in conjunction with the safeguarding and inclusion teams to ensure that all students’ needs are met and that the wellbeing and welfare of our students is constantly monitored. This allows us to work effectively to ensure that the wellbeing of our students is at the forefront of our work. If you have any concerns that you need to make us aware of prior to commencing your studies with us, please contact a member of the Sixth Form or Safeguarding teams at your earliest convenience.
At Chenderit Sixth Form, we are committed to ensuring that none of our students are disadvantaged by wider issues, and that they are fully supported in their study programme. To support them, our students are able to apply for the 16-19 bursary; the 16 to 19 bursary fund provides financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation so they can remain in education. There are two forms of bursary that students are able to apply for:
This bursary is for specific groups of students that are in the following categories
- young people in care
- care leavers
- young people in receipt of Income Support/Universal Credit
- Disabled young people in receipt of both Disability Living Allowance/Personal Independence Payments and Employment Support Allowance.
Students are able to apply for this bursary if their total household income is less than £25,000 a year and/or the student is eligible for free school meals.
Please see the bursary policy below for more information on how we administer the bursaries within Chenderit Sixth Form. If a student is eligible to apply, they can download a copy of the application form below, or collect a copy from Mrs Smith in the Sixth Form Study Centre. If you have any further questions, please contact Mr R Macrory, Head of Sixth Form, via email, EduLink or our contact us page.
