Year 7 Manager
Mrs Navin, Year Manager
My name is Mrs Navin and I am the Year Manager for Year 7.
I am very excited to be working with Year 7 learners and will remain with the year group from their very first day in Year 7 until they complete their GCSEs in Year 11.
Welcome to Year 7
As Year Manager I am looking forward to getting to know every learner and working with and supporting them to be the best they can be. I aim to support all learners, encourage positive attitudes to learning and behaviour in school.
My role is to lead the Year group and with senior staff to manage behaviour, deal with bullying issues and any barriers to learning as they arise.
I am available for learners, parents and carers throughout the school day and after school,to offer emotional and practical support and to celebrate success.
I firmly believe that education is about helping to create life ready young people and school plays a great part in the success of each individual. With this in mind, good attendance and behaviour is key to learning and I have very high expectations and look forward to supporting and guiding the learners to achieve and succeed.
I am open, honest and approachable and available to support learners, parents and carers in relation to learner behaviour, concerns and barriers to learning.
Good communication and support from parents and carers is vital in order for our learners to succeed and I will be more than happy to discuss any issues no matter how small.
Over the next 5 years learners will enjoy a varied and fulfilling time at Kepier and I look forward to being part of their journey.
Miss A. Sood
Year 8 Manager
Miss Sood, Year Manager
Hello and welcome to Year 8. I am very proud to be the Year Manager for Y8. I will remain with the year group until they complete their GCSEs.
Welcome to Year 8
KS3 is a fresh start for all learners, an opportunity to refocus efforts and achieve their best academic outcomes. It is a crucial time in any learner’s school life and not without its challenges; I am committed to the year group and will work with them to make the most of their unique potential.
As well as providing a purposeful, disciplined and thriving learning environment, the needs of every individual learner is at the heart of year management. Care, encouragement and guidance are at hand throughout the day to support learners’ emotional health and well-being. They are not alone: any setbacks or worries will be faced together and every accomplishment celebrated.
Communication with families is vital to the happiness of any learner and I extend a warm invitation to parents and carers to get in touch should there be any concern or queries.
Over the next four years I will ensure the best possible educational experience for learners, champion their brilliance and value them for who they are and for who we know they can become.

My role is to manage the day to day running of the year group and be one of the first ports of call for learners, parents and carers, in relation to learner behaviour and barriers to learning. I will be on-call and available for learners in the year group, throughout the day and after school.
I believe that my honest and open approach to learners, staff and families means that I can get the best out of everyone, whilst still being approachable and helpful. I have extremely high standards and I maintain those throughout my working day and expect the learners in my year group to do the same. Kepier is a great place to work and learn, and I look forward to guiding the year group through the next few years of their education.

My Name is Mr Haley and I will be the new Y11 Manager when your child returns in September. I started this role in July, however I have experience of being a year manager at previous schools. I am excited to start at Kepier and look forward to working with your child.

I have the same high standards of every learner and will work with them and yourselves to ensure when your child leaves Kepier next June, they have achieved their full potential.
I will be available to help support your child through the day to day issues that may arise.
I am very open and honest, supporting your child when in need, but also helping them to understand standards and attitudes when they are not at the expected level. I strive for open lines of communication with parents and carers, and value your support to ensure the best outcomes for your child.
Y11 is an important year and comes with its excitement and challenges. I will be there to help support your child, however to reach their potential, we ask for exemplary attendance and behaviour. Any setbacks, worries or issues will be faced together, with achievements celebrated and honoured. We set high standards in year 11 relating to attendance and behaviour, to prepare them for their life beyond Kepier, whichever path they chose to take. Throughout the year, we will have external speakers and college visits to help support your child with their decisions.
If you have any questions or would like any contact, please do not hesitate to contact me.
