Student Support

Student Support

Each year group has its own student support worker who works closely with the Head of Year and will remain with the year group from Year 9 through to Year 11.  

In order for students to thrive academically we feel that they need to feel safe and supported and the student support team play a vital role in this by:

  • Providing a safe, calm place for any student who is upset and needs time to compose themselves before returning to lessons
  • Offering support, counselling and advice to students with problems such as friendship issues, lack of confidence, eating disorders, sexuality, bereavement, self-harm or family difficulties
  • Referring to other more specialist agencies such as the School Nurse, Touchstones, Children’s Services, Early Help, SPACE
  • Finding solutions to minor problems affecting the student’s ability to learn
  • Assisting the Head of Year with pastoral issues
  • Meeting with students and parents when necessary to discuss any matters having an effect on the student in school
  • Supporting the students to develop the necessary skills to resolve problems themselves
  • Dealing with issues arising from uniform or other school rules

The support workers for each year are:

Year 9- Mr Keenan

Year 10-Mrs Simpson

Year 11-Mrs James
