Pupil wellbeing is of the utmost importance to all members of the school community. This is evident in every aspect of school life e.g. securing the gates at the start of the day, risk assessing activities including trips, providing the new Reception children with Year 2 buddies, ensuring staff and volunteers are appropriately trained in child protection issues and have Disclosure and Barring Service checks.
The school also works hard to support pupil well-being by using trained staff to provide social skills training, nurture groups and counselling. The staff are vigilant in identifying those pupils who are vulnerable at any time and in taking steps to ensure information is communicated so that they can have the best possible care. Where it is needed, advice and possibly intervention is accessed through the Social Workers at the contact centre. Please see the 'About Us' page for contact details and further information.
