Well-Being

Welcome to our Well-Being page! Pupil, parent and staff well-being is important to us.  That is why we invest a lot of time and resources in promoting it and supporting it.  Pupils have the chance to learn about their mental health and what they can do to take good care of it, we have a pastoral team that works with pupils and their families and staff workload is thought carefully about. 

We will post information, news and other resources below that will support our community's well-being.
