  • Taking the register and following up on any absence;
  • Checking uniform;
  • Checking that students have all of their equipment;
  • Delivering form time activities;
  • Discussing individually with students any rewards/sanctions they may have received in lessons;
  • Guiding and advising students and parents on dealing with day to day issues and concerns;
  • Promoting a positive ethos for their house and fulfilling the expectations set by the house system;
