Student Support Managers
At The Norton Knatchbull School students are supported by our four Student Support Managers:
Miss Parsonage who supports Year 7 (and the Transition from year 6)
Mr Ellis who supports Years 8 and 9
Mrs Davies who supports Years 10 and 11
Mrs Thompson who supports the Sixth Form
Mr Baker, our attendance officer
These are full time, non teaching members of staff who are therefore available to work very closely with our students, parents and carers throughout the whole school day. The Student Support Managers are responsible for the daily pastoral care of our students, working alongside tutors and class teachers. They mentor and monitor the students, follow up attendance and behaviour issues and access additional services for young people who may require further support. They are committed to ensuring that pupils in their care are happy, enjoy coming to school, and are making good progress with their learning.
