Mid Phase Admissions at Rokeby are students that start school start the school after the first half term of Year 7 through to Year 11.

Ethos

 

We welcome all students into the Rokeby community and offer every child an education. We are aware that students joining Rokeby mid-phase are doing so for a variety of reasons, some of which may be upsetting and difficult for them. At Rokeby we support all students and offer packages to meet their individual needs, whether emotional, learning or behavioural. Parents and carers are an important part of the Rokeby community and are welcomed along with their children.

Aims

  • To make every child and parent/ carer feel welcomed and a valued member of the school community.

  • To assess every child accurately and provide any necessary support for them.

  • To ensure that we are fully aware of any medical conditions, with the care plan if applicable.

  • To ensure that every teacher is aware of the new arrival and any needs they have.

  • To work with any outside agencies the child may be involved in.

  • To pair students up with ‘buddies' in order to encourage integration with peers.

Whole School Procedure

  • The new student will be invited in for an interview with the Student Support Officer in week one.

  • In week two, the new student will come into the school and have assessments for core subjects (English, Maths and Science).

  • During that week, the school prepares for the new student by:

    • entering all the information onto the database

    • allocating the student a form group and a timetable

    • organising two ‘buddies' for the new student, and briefing them on their role

    • circulating information about the new student to all teachers, on a ‘need to know' basis

    • ensuring any support needed (SEN, EAL or G&T) is in place

  • The student starts in week three, and is met by his ‘buddies' and taken to his form class for registration.

  • After one week, two weeks and four weeks the student and the allocated buddies meet with a member of the EAL team and discuss how the integration has gone. Any issues raised are passed on to the year coordinator.

  • By week four, the student is a fully integrated member of the Rokeby community and our rigorous systems of tracking data and progress supports the student through their time at Rokeby.
