Every pupil is allocated a Guidance teacher when he/she starts school, who stays with them throughout their time at Inverness Royal Academy. They are responsible for the personal, curricular and vocational care of the pupils within that House Group. The role of each Guidance Teacher is to help with any behavioural, personal, family or health issues and to be the first point of contact between school and home. A considerable amount of their time is devoted to teaching Personal and Social Education, giving advice on a wide range of topics such as Health and Social issues, as well as school course choices and career options. The advice given will be based on a realistic appraisal of the pupil’s prospects and consideration of their career aspirations. Pupils will also receive guidance and assistance on completing application forms for the workplace/college/university as well as interview techniques. Their other duties include the monitoring of attendance; reviewing of pupils’ progress and assessing the individual support needs of each pupil.
Parents should contact Guidance in the first instance with any matter relating to their child/child’s education.
