Developing personally

  • You can see the timetable of activities on the school website and sign-up using edulink.
  • Students will have opportunities to go on trips and visits so try to make the most of these.
  • There are groups to support issues around wellbeing, racism, homophobia and bullying.

If you need support

  • Your child will see their tutor every morning so they are the best person to support you.

Values Card

Supporting SEND students

-All additional SEND support in year 7 is based on information from the transition process from primary schools.

-If your child has a diagnosis please could a copy of their diagnosis letter be sent

-Any outstanding external referrals (CAMHS/OT/EP) must be completed at primary school due to the evidence required for these to be successful

-If a student requires any external referrals these will only be considered in year 8.

-If staff raise concerns we have a rigorous referral process that allows us to provide internal support.

Focus areas

  • Further expanding the behaviour team by employing a non-teaching behaviour manager to better support staff and pupils in promoting positive behaviour and attitudes across the school.
  • Relaunching and expanding wellbeing ambassadors and the Retreat room to ensure pupils have ample resources to support their mental health whilst in school.
  • Continuing to expand the curriculum offer to include more opportunities for pupils to discover new subjects and enjoy a blend of traditional academic subjects alongside a plethora of practical subjects, as well as modern foreign languages and vocational qualifications.

Leaders at the School are working closely with colleagues and families to strengthen the School’s provision and propel its improvement initiatives. As a result, the report notes that “Pupils are happy and safe. Pastoral support is a strong focus”. Part of the pastoral provision includes ‘Wednesday well-being’ lessons in tutor time which “encourages pupils to view mental health positively”.
