Safeguarding and Wellbeing
We are committed to the development of the whole child and believe that an all-round education and excellent pastoral support are integral to this so that children develop into happy and fulfilled adults that are able to reach their potential as global citizens.
The wellbeing of all the children and young people in our care is supported by our strong pastoral team of:
- Class Teachers, Form Tutors and Teaching Assistants
- Heads of Key Stage
- School Counsellor
- School Nurse
- Child and Family Support Worker
- First Aid Team
- Peer Mentors and Buddies
We also work closely with a host of other external services such as Hope, CAMHS, CLD, Young Carers. Our PSHE, Life Skills and assemblies programmes are an important part of making wellbeing at the core of what we do. We actively promote The Five Ways to Wellbeing by encouraging pupils to connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give.
Our robust yet flexible pastoral support is the foundation to enable students to be in the best possible position to learn, to develop resilience and ultimately to flourish in life far beyond school.
We believe that keeping children safe is our main priority as a school. We fully recognise our moral and statutory responsibilites for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children in our care. We have proactive and rigorous safeguarding procedures in place. All our staff are safeguarding trained; certain key staff who lead on safeguarding have advanced training. If you have concerns about the safeguarding of any children at our school, please contact our Designated Safeguarding Lead.
