Wellbeing and Pastoral Care

Mental Health Support

Safeguarding is taken very seriously: all staff raise concerns, however apparently slight, to form a bigger picture to help protect our children. We are happy to work with external agencies in these endeavours. Most matters often require a listening ear and some gentle and wise words. Pupil mentors are on hand for our younger children. All pupils know their form tutors to be approachable and readily talk to them to support them. Staff give generously of their time whether it’s through ‘Period 7’ academic help or a consoling chat with a pastoral lead. Parents can raise their concerns and most issues can be addressed before they become more serious.
