There will be a cut off date for movement, which you will be informed of at the start of term.
Is the behaviour system the same as in main school?
No, far from it. In Sixth Form we would like to treat you as an adult, so we have a professional code of conduct that we ask you to adhere to. Our expectations are high within sixth form and throughout your time with us we will help and encourage you to display behaviours that you would require in your next steps, be that University, Apprenticeship or employment.
What are the expectations for attendance?
Part of our role within the sixth form is to get you ‘work place ready’, and as such we expect what employers would expect in terms of attendance. This means that you would attend all of your timetabled sessions. If you are ill, then you would be expected to contact the Sixth Form Team to advise us of your illness and when you are likely to be returning to your studies.
Can I take holidays in term time?
No, we do not allow holidays within term time as this directly affects attendance and this can have an affect on your desired next steps. Places on apprenticeships are highly competitive and attendance is one aspect that can impact on your application success. There are also many employers who have specific attendance requirements (all of which are high), so in not allowing holidays we are helping to support you move forward.
How do the results at Temple Moor compare to other schools and colleges?
Due to the cancellation of the examinations in 2020 due to COVID-19, the government are not issuing the 2020 performance data on individual schools or the performance of schools nationally.
Previous to this our validated data shows that are results are highly competitive with other schools and college around Leeds and Nationally. We add value to the students who study with us and allow them to progress onto their desired next steps.
Can I leave site when I don’t have a lesson?
Yes, this is one of the benefits of Sixth Form, you begin to make choices about how your use your time. You are able to leave site, the only requirement is that you sign in and our as appropriate for safeguarding.
