Each class in the Secondary school has a tutor whom they will meet every morning in order to register and to ensure that they are up to date with the daily bulletin and other school news and events. The tutor is the first 'port of call' for any immediate concerns and issues that students or parents may wish to raise about any aspect of life at St Julian's.
In accordance with the school's mission statement, it is the tutor who is responsible in the first instance for monitoring the student's progress not only towards academic achievement targets but also towards a 'balance between academic, social cultural and physical activities, integrating emotional spiritual and intellectual development.'
The tutor is also responsible for liaising with parents to ensure that the school is in possession of any personal information which might affect a student's performance.
In addition, each year group is co-ordinated by a Head of Year. The Head of Year supports tutors and co ordinates their work to the benefit of the entire year group, and will take responsibility for matters of discipline and student well being that may affect the group as a whole. They may also organise and take responsibility for activities involving the entire year group, such as residential end-of-term trips and the work experience carried out in the summer term by Year 10. Heads of Year will also review reports, receive feedback from parents' evenings and work to ensure a smooth transition on the part of the whole group, from one year to another.
