Pupils Welfare
We have a number of support systems in place at the school to provide care and support to any child that needs it.

School Based Counselling "Action for Children"
Counselling at school provides an opportunity for students to talk about things that are of concern to them, in confidence. The school counsellor is a professionally qualified therapist who has extensive experience of working with young people. The school counsellor is trained to listen without judging and to help students to sort out their thoughts and feelings Students are able to refer themselves by talking to a member of staff, to the Head of Year or directly to Mrs Burnhill who liaises closely with the school counsellor. Parents may contact any of the above if they wish to refer their child. The Counsellor is based at the school for two days every week.

SEREN
Seren is a Peer Support Group, SEREN that is run by a group of trained Year 12 and 13 students. Their role is to assist other pupils to sort out problems, disputes and arguments. Peer Supporters may, for example, assist the pupils in dispute to listen to each other’s point of view, focus on the problem and create their own solutions. Members of Seren offer their support during lunchtimes in the Seren Room. Any student can ask for help from any of the Seren members, who wear an orange star on their school uniform
