Starting from Wednesday the 12th March all second year students will have a five minute appointment with their personal tutor, we aim to see as many as students as possible on the Wednesday but it's possible their appointment will be later in the week. Lessons will run as normal for all students on this day but they will be allowed to leave their lesson for their Personal Tutor Appt time. All first year students will be seen week commencing the 24th March. All students will be sent an individual appointment time via their email address and we would appreciate your support in encouraging them to attend.
The purpose of these days is to review their progress in all their subjects and set targets for the remainder of the academic year. This report will get sent home to you.
As you know attendance at all your college lessons is essential to you achieving the best possible grades.
We have made some changes to how you and your parents need to report any absence to the college. The changes are outlined below:
1. Any absence must be reported to the college attendance officer Sue Woolley by phone each day of the absence. The number to call is 01695 628622
You may have to leave an answer phone message but the call must be recorded or the absence is unauthorised. If preferred you can copy the attendance officer into the email you send your tutors and PT below.
2. You must email your subject tutors and your PT to notify them of absence and ask for any work that you may miss. The responsibility for catching up with missed work is yours.
We would ask that all medical and dental appointments are made outside of lessons but in the rare case that this may not be possible you should complete a request for absence form before the event and present this to the Attendance Officer in student services.
Please click here to download the form.
University open days and driving tests also require a request for absence form and should be presented to the attendance officer in advance of the event. Trips and visits are dealt with internally.
Thank you for your cooperation

We know that parental involvement has a major influence on how well students do at college.
Governors are keen to speak to parents to find out if there are any more ways where the college can help parents to engage further in supporting their son/daughter’s education during their time at Winstanley.
To this end, governors will be available to listen to parents’ views on this on Thursday 5 December 2013 from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm in the conference room and would be delighted to speak to you.
Please be aware that governors are not able to respond to individual queries or concerns – these should be discussed with the relevant Personal Tutor.
