Every pupil at Boclair is allocated to a member of the guidance team who will generally get to know him/her well during his/her time at school; the guidance teacher will monitor your child’s progress, be the first point of contact for parents  and also for the pupil if they need help or support or just someone to talk to about any aspect of school life.

You will be told before your child enters S1 who his/her guidance teacher will be. That teacher will, during the session

  • interview pupils in their group
  • be available at other times for consultation on health, personal, social and educational problems
  • liaise with their register teachers to monitor the attendance and punctuality of the year group
  • counsel individuals who find difficulty in adapting to the demands of living and working in a school environment
  • liaise with other members of the Pupil Support Team and the Senior Management Team to ensure additional support is given when required

Parents wishing to enquire about the progress of their son/daughter or any problem relating to school should initially contact the school office to arrange an appointment with the guidance teacher.
