The role of the Student Support Team is to provide students with all aspects of pastoral care, from taking care of unwell students and working with teaching staff to helping those experiencing personal difficulties.
The team provides an important link between home and school, whether this is contacting parents when a student is ill, helping with lost property or simply providing information on school life and answering frequently asked questions.
Students needing to go off-site for appointments during the school day should sign in and out via the attendance office situated diagonally opposite student reception. Parents/carers should ensure students have a note in their planner to verify the appointment.
A gentle reminder that, wherever possible, dental, doctor, hospital etc appointments should be made for out of school hours to minimise disruption to learning.
The medical/first aid room is located within main reception and is where unwell students can be collected from. Prescribed medication that needs to be taken during the day must be left here together with a signed permission form, please see link below.
The school offers a nurse drop in session once a week on Wednesday lunchtime, full details can be viewed via the link below.
Student Reception is open to students at the following times: before school (8.25 am), morning break (10.40 – 11.00 am), lunchtime (1.00 – 1.40 pm) and after school (3.00 – 3.30 pm); for Fridays the times are 8.25 am, 10.50 – 11.20 am and 1.30 – 2.00 pm, respectively.
