I am Mr Williams. I am in charge of organising all the primary visits and events that happen at Byrchall. I am also a PE Teacher and love getting involved in sport. My role is to ensure that your transition to high school is a smooth one and that you look forward to joining us here at Byrchall. Parents and students can contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Hello. My name is Mrs Fletcher. I am one of the Assistant Head teachers in school and in my role as Head of Lower school one of my responsibilities is making sure you have a smooth transition from primary school. One of my big jobs is visiting our primary schools before you start and finding out lots of information about you; what you like and are good at and maybe the things that you struggle with a little bit.
I work closely with the Year 7 team to make sure everything is in place for you to have a really positive start to high school.
Hello to you, our new Year 7. My name is Mrs Hudson. I am one of the Assistant Head teachers in school, my role is to look after pupil welfare and support. I am also in charge of making sure that everyone in school is safe in my role as Designated safeguarding lead. I work with our SENCO and pastoral support assistants to make sure that everyone in school gets the help and support they need in their learning but also in their emotional health and well-being. I also teach Food in school.
I look forward to meeting you all in the near future I hope!
Hello, future Year 7 students. My name is Miss Wilson and I am Head of Year 7 at Byrchall. My role in school is to make sure that you have the best start to Year 7 and I will continue to support you throughout the year.
I will be in the Year 7 area most mornings and I see you in your form rooms each morning. One of the most exciting things about my role is that I get to celebrate all of your achievements in our weekly assemblies and I am certain that I will have lots of success stories this coming year.
I am also an English teacher, so you will see me over in the Wall building and around school.
I am really looking forward to meeting you all.
Hello, my name is Miss Brown. As well as being a teacher at Byrchall, my main role is being the SENCO. My job is to make sure that any child who has additional needs gets the support they need. At Byrchall we have about 100 students who have an additional need, or require a bit of extra help. This might be a bit of help with handwriting, spelling, reading, math or in class support from a Teaching Assistant. Once at Byrchall, any child who thinks they need more help can speak to me, or one of my team of Teaching Assistants. If you, or you parent think you may need some extra help, please feel free to get in touch. Email is the easiest way to communicate with me at this time. My email is: email@example.com
As SENCO it’s my job to make sure you can overcome any difficulties you have, that you do as well as you can at school and that you feel supported.
