Information for Parents & Carers

Making The Best Start At UTC Warrington

 

Supportive parents and carers are a vital element of a student’s success. Here at UTC Warrington we appreciate the importance of a supportive family network working in conjunction with teachers and staff alongside students. We are keen to build strong links with the family of students who study with us.

 

During each academic year we will provide parents with regular updates on their son/daughter’s targets and progress. We will host parents evenings for one-to-one updates and events open to all family members to showcase the work that students undertake throughout the academic year. We will also operate an excellent communication system between the college and home to ensure parents are kept up to date with college news, events and updates.

 

In some cases it may be appropriate for parents/carers of our students to come and share their knowledge of the working world with our students. We are keen to build links with as many local employers as possible to provide our students with access to as many opportunities as we can. If you work for or run a company that has some knowledge to share, facilities to showcase or is able to provide support in other ways do not hesitate to let us know!

Relationships at UTC Warrington

The relationships across the entire UTC Warrington community are characterised by mutual respect and support, and a sense of shared endeavour.

 

All communications and conversations will be conducted in a professional and constructive manner and students will be encouraged to provide thoughtful and increasingly mature responses in all situations. In this way they will start to model their future professional behaviours.

 

The behaviour and discipline policy is underpinned by four straightforward and fundamental principles, which all students will be able to understand and embrace. They will understand how these principles translate into adult and professional life. These are:

  • mutual respect and shared responsibility for the wellbeing of all
  • health and safety and their personal responsibility for the safety of all
  • the effectiveness and productivity of the UTC
  • the professional reputation of the UTC

 

Attendance, punctuality and productive behaviours are therefore critical for success; as will an appreciation of difference and diversity.

 

All staff at UTC Warrington will model these behaviours for students and provide strong professional role models.
