Ensuring the safety of all our pupils is of paramount importance to us across all our school campus’. This includes the security of our pupils whilst in the school premises and grounds, as well as their safety outside of school time.
Additionally, we understand how challenging school can be for many pupils and that increasing worries or stress can impact their mental health as well as their physical health. We feel that too many pupils struggle alone with mental health difficulties which can have detrimental effects on their learning, teaching and general wellbeing. We want to help remove the stigma, create a nurturing environment and support the wellbeing of our pupils. We believe that if you get the emotional support, wellbeing and nurturing environment right, the learning will follow.
