Personal Development

Our pastoral system is founded on a code of conduct that is highly visible around school and all students are familiar with. In addition, weekly ‘Ethics’ and Preparation for Adulthood lessons ensure students study all aspects of SMSC and PSHE. This is further highlighted through the planning documentations of individual staff. 

A pastoral curriculum is offered across the school to deliver targeted interventions to small groups to support outcomes identified in the EHCP by ELSA trained staff. This includes understanding and coping with feelings about ourselves and others. Developing high self-esteem and positive interactions with others and being emotionally literate helps children focus better on their learning. ELSAs build the capacity of schools to support the social/emotional and mental health needs of their pupils from within their own resources
