The House system plays an important role in the life of students.  It provides every student with:

  • Daily contact with a Form Tutor (Form Tutors are part of the House team).  The Form Tutor will be at the centre of the student's experience
  • A tutorial programme delivering academic mentoring and developing personal well-being
  • Monitoring of their learning behaviours
  • Support for issues that are barriers to learning

The House team will contact parents to:

  • Celebrate students' achievements
  • Notify parents of House events
  • Clarify issues that may be affecting a student's learning or well-being
  • Discuss concerns over attendance
  • Notify parents of detentions

Where parents can find further information during the academic year:

  • Parent weekly bulletin
  • Calendar and newsletter
  • Letters from School
  • Like us on Facebook - oxtedschool
  • Follow us on Twitter - @oxtedschool

Parents can support the house team by:

  • Keeping contact details up to date
  • Informing School of any changes to family circumstances
  • Communicating concerns regarding any aspect of School as soon as they become a concern
  • Ensuring your child attends regularly, helping them to achieve 95% or higher attendance
  • Provide the necessary equipment so your child is always ready to learn
  • Ensure your child is correctly wearing full uniform and is punctual for the start of the school day
  • Take an interest in your child's school work and encourage them to always do their best, including the completion of homework
  • Support Oxted School in ensuring high standards of behaviour encouraging your child to follow the Oxted 3
  • Co-operate with the School in providing the best education for your child

Ways that parents can communicate with the house:

  • Emailing members of the House team
  • Telephoning a member of the House team
     

the student planner - parent engagement

Get to know your son/daughter's planner.  If used properly it is a fantastic tool to keep in touch with School, especially the Form Tutor.  Please look at it most nights, keep an eye on homework/letters being sent home.  Please sign the planner every week; it will be checked by the Form Tutor each week in planner check.
