The first day of term will just be for Year 7 students (and year 12 in the sixth form area).
They will follow an induction program to get them ready for the new term.
This includes having their photograph taken, a library induction, and a tour of the school.
They spend the day in their form group getting to know each other.
Buddies will be there to help them settle in and escort them around the school.
Each class is linked to 3 Year 11 students or ‘Buddies’ who will escort them to all of their lessons for the first week.
They will then spend time with them in form time each week and help them with any issues they might have.
We have plenty of support available in school should your child need it.
They have a form tutor, Head of Year, and we also have an extremely successful pastoral hub with trained counsellors and support staff.
The buddies act as mentors for the first few weeks.
They will be given a library induction during their first week and will be issued a library card.

Your child’s form tutor will see them every day.
Their main role is to provide support for your child, both emotionally and academically.
In Year 7 we have a static Head of Year, who will be able to help your child transition into secondary school.
In the following 4 years, they have the same Head of Year who will get to know them very well.
In the case of an emergency or absence, please call 01637 872080 and someone in main reception can help you.
You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact Miss Barber, Head of Year 7, directly, if you have any concerns about your child.
Our policy states that we reply within 3 working days.
We want to support your child’s emotional well-being and support them in any way that we can.
In the first instance, you should contact the Head of Year or Form Tutor.
Every student and staff member at Newquay Tretherras is assigned a House.
The House system creates healthy competition, promotes good work and behaviour, raises aspirations, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together.
The houses are named after local Cornish lighthouses. (Longships, Wolf Rock, Godrevy, Lizard and Pendeen).
They compete for the house cup each year, and each house has an assigned colour – this may be seen on badges, pocket strips or PE tops when competing i.e. during sports day
There are no designated Drop Off points at the school.
If you are collecting your child because we have contacted you to say they are unwell, you will be able to collect them from the main reception.

If your child is in Years 10 or 11 and needs to be collected for an appointment, you will be able to collect them from the quay reception.
We have a fantastic SEN department that will support your child.
Our SENCO, Hayley Coombes, will liaise with your child’s primary school before they start to ensure we put the right support in place.
Each child with SEN, has a pupil profile which is sent to all of their teaching staff.
This includes specific ways to help them in class. There is also an excellent team of teaching assistants who may work with your child is required.
Any child with an EHCP will have a meeting with the SENCO before they start in September.
