COMMENTS FROM REPORT:
“The wellbeing of all is the central principle of the school and the foundation on which all other developments are built upon”.
“The curriculum, including knowledge gained from assemblies and the work carried out by staff, provide the pupils with a range of strategies. Pupils had an excellent understanding of their own wellbeing and the importance of exercise and other factors which positively affect them. As a result, pupils are better equipped to deal with pressures as they progress through the school”.
“Very strong relationships exist between the staff and pupils. Should they have any worries, anxieties or concerns, pupils know that staff will support them. The staff work together effectively and support each other. They feel valued by the school leaders who manage staffs’ workload effectively”.
