Every child at Gresham’s Prep will be assigned to a Tutor whose role it is to help every child in their care with the everyday problems of school life as well as monitoring academic progress and acting as a first point of contact over most matters for parents of day children.
Children meet with their tutor four times a week providing an opportunity for both the teacher and pupil to get to know each other and create opportunities to discuss any issues or problems. The tutor also plays an important role in the day to day pastoral care of the children in his or her care. The tutor is responsible for recording merit and demerit points and will raise concerns over issues that may arise. Tutors are also responsible for the delivery of the PSHE syllabus. They will get in touch with the parents of their tutees at the start of the school year to introduce themselves.
