I LEARN Tutors
Pupils are allocated an I LEARN Group and their I LEARN Tutor is responsible for the day to day academic and pastoral support. The I LEARN Tutor is the first point of contact should parents / carers wish to communicate with the school about their child.
Year Leaders & Lead Professional – Pastoral
Our team of 5 non-teaching Year Leaders each have responsibility for a year group within the school. The Year Leaders’ main role is to create a positive work and behaviour ethos within the school and support pupils with any difficulties they might have. The Year Leaders work very closely with the Lead Professional – Pastoral, who oversees the work of the Year Teams.
Transfer and Inclusion Co-ordinator
The Academy has a Transfer and Inclusion Co-ordinator who ensures that the school has a large amount of information on the learning needs, medical needs, behaviour and social and emotional profiles of every pupil before they arrive at Lawn Manor. She also spends a lot of time throughout the academic year in partner primary schools getting to know all the children before they come to Lawn Manor and meets with every pupil. All Year 5 pupils experience “I LEARN Days” and all Year 6 pupils experience an ‘Artsmad’ Day in September; there is a further ‘Transfer Day’ for Year 6 in July.
Safeguarding & Partnership Officer
Our Safeguarding & Partnership Officer, Hannah Wolfe, primarily supports pupils in relation to safeguarding and child protection matters. Whilst in most cases Hannah will have close communication with parents / carers, there are occasions when the school may need to contact other agencies before contacting families. Hannah will also meet with parents / carers to complete Early Help Records, and may also signpost pupils and parents to external support.

I LEARN Interventions
Our interventions aim to support young people to increase self-esteem, raise expectations, improve their motivation and help them to recognise and achieve their potential. We offer structured and targeted I LEARN intervention for pupils with a variety of social, emotional and behavioural needs. Pupils are referred for I LEARN support through Year Leaders and the Student Support Team. All interventions take the form of small group or 1-2-1 work, and usually have a fixed duration of six to ten weeks. School based interventions include: Tranquillity Zone, Nurture Groups, Anger Management, and therapeutic work. The Academy has a Counsellor.
School Council (Pupil Voice)
Pupils have the opportunity to express their opinions and contribute to the Academy through our School Council. There are House Councils, with representatives per I LEARN Group, and an overarching School Council with representatives from each House Council.
