The welfare of all our pupils is taken very seriously. This is shown through :
- Pupil well-being surveys are carried out annually for our KS2 pupils and results are analysed by SLT.
- Our school council ensures that pupil’s voices /opinions are heard. Pupil voices form part of school’s monitoring process.
- Staff are vigilant to pupil’s well-being and concerns are recorded on the school’s computerised MyConcerns programme. The Inclusion Manager/Head of School monitors these concerns and takes appropriate action when necessary.
- The school has a learning mentor who spends a considerable amount of time working with individual pupils who have specific concerns/difficulties. She tailors support around the needs of the individual but examples include: daily emotional check-in,
Anger-management, family issues, friendship issues.
- The school works closely with Family Support Teams and if necessary families can receive intensive support with issues such as behaviour management, debt, housing issues.
- If necessary to facilitate the well-being of our pupils, the school can initiate or support with an Early Help Assessment.
- The school offers an extensive extra-curricular programme of activities both after school and during lunch time.
- The school delivers a programme of weekly in-class support through PATHS. Children are taught about emotional well-being, relationships and making positive healthy choices.
- Access to daily free breakfast club on site, ensuring a healthy start to the day from 8.15am to 8.45am.
