Student Support and Wellbeing


All safeguarding procedures are documented via the safeguarding software programme and followed up as appropriate via internal or external support systems. All staff have the responsibility to log anything via the system that they deem to be inappropriate, and this can vary in significance of concern. We have a mental health lead on site who deals with some follow up support from concerns logged. In addition, we have an extended pastoral team who are responsible for the safeguarding of their year group with the overarching support of the Designated and Deputy Safeguarding Leads. We network with a wide variety of external services to ensure all children are fully supported, this includes: TADS, Compass, CAMHS, Counselling and the Police.

Wellbeing Hub:

Our Wellbeing hub ran by our Mental Health Leads is central to supporting students within school in a variety of ways. We work with various external agencies to offer students a range of mental health support including one to one sessions with counsellors, group work and training. Along with Mental Health Support students can access The Hub for support around LGBTQ+ and anti-bullying, as well as becoming student ambassadors of these areas. The Hub is an advocate for delivering whole staff training to better support the community we serve. Around school, in addition to the wellbeing hub, DSL and pastoral team, you will see posters advertising external support.
