To all students and parents of U8, I am your form tutor. My name is Bethan Dumayne and I am also a teacher of Spanish and French at Passmores Academy. I have taught at this school for 8 years and have enjoyed being a tutor during this time.
I am originally from Newport, South Wales and my passions include languages, travel and music.
I find the role of being a form tutor to be a very rewarding one. I strongly believe in fostering positive relationships with all students within my tutor group and I encourage my students to develop such relationships with each other too. I hope that as parents you will work with me in supporting your son / daughter to ensure that they have the correct equipment each day, that the correct uniform is worn every day and that your son / daughter regularly attends school. I also feel that it is important to make the most of every opportunity your son / daughter has at Passmores by getting involved in the many House activities taking place throughout the year or by participating in an extra-curricular club. All of these will help your son / daughter to earn Passmores points plus various other rewards. Last year the students in U8 came with a motto for our form, that “little things make a big difference.” By all doing the little, basic things right we can be a successful form group.
I wish your son / daughter every happiness and success at Passmores.
As your son / daughter’s tutor I am your first point of contact should you have any questions or problems you wish to discuss. If you need to contact me either call me at school or email me.
