WELLBEING

We understand that a young person’s wellbeing affects their engagement with learning and their social and emotional behaviour. When young people feel valued and supported, they are able to feel confident in who they are, engage with their learning, and feel optimistic about the future.

Wellbeing Committee

Our purpose is to create a sense of belonging for every student at our school. We want the school environment to be a place where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves.  Our committee is made up of students who enjoy planning events, running activities and getting involved in the community and school life and want to make a positive difference.
