Happy and confident students are more likely to gain the best from their school years.

Responsible for ensuring all our students keep on track to achieve the best they can academically and ensuring they develop into responsible, respectful and caring individuals.
Our robust safeguarding policy is rigorously promoted through the school, with all staff and students knowing who to turn to in school for advice and support if any issues arise. Safeguarding topics are regularly covered in school assemblies and personal development classes, sometimes with guest speakers from the community police or youth community advice groups, to educate our students on how to keep themselves safe and well, both mentally and physically and where to seek help if needed. We understand that some students may be anxious about starting a conversation about problems they may be having. We have an online channel (confide) that all students can access from any school computer so they can reach out to our safeguarding team discreetly and in a manner they may feel more comfortable with. If you have any concerns about your child’s schoolwork or wellbeing, in the first instance, please contact the pastoral team on email@example.com so we can make sure the right member of our team can deal with things.
