Booklet: The Role of a Form Tutor
Being a form tutor has always been the most rewarding part of teaching for me. I became a form tutor on my first day as a Newly Qualified Teacher in England and created this report, when my first form left secondary school after I had been their tutor from their first day until their last.
I have previously used this report as a basis of staff training in England. While the role of the form tutor changes depending on the school context, the principles of pastoral care are the same and I have adapted parts to use for my form tutors in the Diploma Programme at each IB school I have worked in.
When I hold form tutor meetings I refer to different parts of the document. The advice on the form room and its role of giving a form its identity, for example, is shown at the start of the academic year when staff have their new forms.
This 12,269 word report is a summary of my experiences and is full of practical advice.
