Student Support Managers

Our Student Support Managers or SSMs work very closely with our students, parents and carers. There are three SSMs in the Secondary Phase, each of whom work with an individual Year Group. The SSMs are responsible for the daily pastoral care of our students working alongside tutors and class teachers. They mentor and monitor the students, follow up attendance issues and access additional services for young people who may require further further support. They are all committed to ensuring our students are happy at hlc, enjoy coming to school and are making good progress with their learning.

If you have any queries or issues regarding attendance, mentoring, monitoring or support, the Student Support Managers can be contacted via email or telephone.

My role as a Student Support Manager is very rewarding, you form close relationships with your year group and some of their families. As a parent who works and has a child in HLC Secondary School I feel that the SSM’s have supported my daughter when she was lacking the confidence and self-esteem to progress in school. Academically my daughter has progressed above and beyond due to the support of all the staff.

As a S.S.M. I really enjoy supporting our students and their families during their journey through school, helping them to cope with the challenges that school and life can throw at us all.
It’s extremely rewarding to see our students progress and achieve their potential and I feel privileged to play a part in ensuring that they feel safe, happy and do well.
I have an extensive background in Child Protection and am part of a fabulous Student Support Team here at H.L.C. that have a vast amount of experience collectively to meet and support your child`s needs.
I look forward to meeting you !

As an SSM you watch your year group grow and develop, you go through the highs and lows with them and their families. Each day has different challenges and rewards. I feel that sometimes we get to make a difference even if it’s only small.
