Excellent systems are in place to ensure that the personal development of pupils is at the forefront of their education. Pupils are encouraged to express their concerns or worries though a soft toy; they post their worries into its mouth, in the knowledge that a teacher will read the message and respond with support.
The school provides a confidential counselling service called ‘Chatline’ for any child who wishes to discuss any matter which might be troubling them. The sessions are private and the children request sessions through a post box system. The counsellor has a certificate in counselling skills.
