Year 7

Welcome to Year 7!

During Year 7, our primary goal is to support young students to settle into Academy life and begin to develop their personal, social, and academic skills. The form tutor is an essential part of a student’s day; they are there to inspire, support and encourage students to try their best and get involved with all aspects of Academy life. Extra-curricular clubs are a huge part of our week, with many, varied lunchtime and after school clubs on each week. It is a pleasure to see students explore different areas and become inspired by different teachers around the school.

Attendance at George Dixon Academy

Hi everyone, I'm Mr Harrison and I'd like to take some time to introduce myself and to let you know what my role is here at George Dixon and how I can support pupils and families with regards to attendance.

I graduated as a Primary School teacher is 2014 and have over 10 years' experience working in education. I moved over to pastoral support in 2020 and thoroughly enjoy the work involved.

I thrive on building relationships with families and working relentlessly to support them the best way possible when it comes to attendance and welfare.

My role at George Dixon is Attendance and Welfare Officer and I will be responsible for attendance matters within the school.

I am here to help and support with breaking down any barriers that are preventing your child/ren attending school.

I'm fully aware of obstacles and constraints that may impact your child's ability to attend school. It's essential that you communicate these with school so we can assist in every way possible to ensure regular attendance remains possible.

If you have any concerns, questions or would like to discuss any attendance matters, please call the school and arrange a meeting.

Contact: Email or call Mr Harrison on 07852 574867 (7am - 3:45pm).
