NCW 2018-19 Pupil Profile Booklet

To celebrate the launch of our new website, we have created our brand new student profile booklet to help engage your students with key employability messages regarding the importance of punctuality, attendance, behaviour and target setting. This booklet is ideal to use during tutor time over the course of the year to ensure students focus on forming good habits that will serve them well in the future.
