Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP)

Form Teachers play a central role in shaping the development of their young charges. The Form Teacher Guidance Period (FTGP) enables Form Teachers to better cater to each pupil’s holistic development (especially their Social and Emotional Learning) and build closer teacher-pupil rapport.

The Social-Emotional Competencies we seek to develop in every child are as follows:

Self-Awareness
Your child has self-awareness if he/she understands his/her own emotions, strengths, inclinations and weaknesses.

Self-Management
Your child can manage himself/herself effectively if he/she has the capacity to manage his/her own emotions. He/She should be self-motivated, exercise discipline and display strong goal-setting and organizational skills.

Social Awareness
Your child has social awareness if he/she has the ability to accurately discern different perspectives, recognize and appreciate diversity, empathize with and respect others.

Relationship Management
Your child can manage relationships effectively if he/she has the ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships through effective communication, and is able to work with others to resolve issues and provide assistance.

Responsible Decision-Making
Your child can make responsible decisions if he/she has the capacity to identify and analyze a situation competently. He/She should be able to reflect upon the implications of decisions made, based on personal, moral and ethical considerations.
