Support and Advice


As a school we know just how important wellbeing is to our young people. Being happy and healthy are essential ingredients to ensuring they are able to take positive steps towards Being Positive, Being Respectful and Being Their Best.

Our staff are committed to providing first class pastoral care and have the skills to be able support our young people through challenging times. We work closely with students and families to ensure a layer of support can be wrapped around the child at times when most needed.

Equally we know that signposting students and families to outside agencies can make a positive impact too. As a parent/carer knowing where to go, who to turn to when times are tough can be confusing. Hopefully our carefully constructed A-Z directory will provide you with a place from which to start. All of these services have been tried and tested and will go some way to help your child back on the road to recovery.

If in doubt please do not hesitate to contact us at the school for further advice and guidance.
