Miss A. Sood
Year 7 Manager
Miss Sood, Year Manager
Hello and welcome to Year 7. I am very proud to be the Year Manager for Y7. I will remain with the year group until they complete their GCSEs.
Welcome to Year 7
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 query no matter how small. From uniform issues to forgotten lunch boxes the Year Manager is the first point of contact.
Over the next five 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.

Being an experienced member of staff, with 15 years at Kepier, I aim to build positive relationships with both Parents and learners alike.
I strive to provide a safe, calm and honest working environment and am available for the learners throughout the school day.

My role is to take the lead in the day to day running of a year group and be available for learners, parents/carers in relation to learner behaviour and barriers to learning. I will be on-call for learners in the year group throughout the day and after school. I have very high expectations and I am, along with more senior staff responsible for managing the behaviour of the year group including detentions, and responding to any attendance and bullying issues, should they arise.
I also support the work of the coaches and liaise with department leaders about issues relating to learners within the year group to ensure learners in Year 8 make the best progress possible.
I would hope that with the support that learners in my year group receive in school coupled with the valued support from parents/carers and extended family, that all learners will have every opportunity to enjoy a varied and fulfilling time at Kepier and in doing so will reach their full potential.
