Our Vision

The Guidance department is committed to providing high quality pastoral care, Health and Wellbeing education and personal development by providing excellent learning opportunities in PSHE and other programmes delivered by key partners linked to the school.

Staff will endeavour to provide help, advice and develop a nurturing environment to allow all our young people to achieve their potential.

By modelling our school values the department hopes to encourage adoption of these values within the daily lives of our young people.

We will ensure the parents and carers of young people are aware of barriers to learning and what they can do to help their children overcome them.
