WELCOME TO THE STUDENT SUPPORT/GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT

ABOUT US

All guidance staff work together in an open plan base. Our door is always open so that students can come in and speak to a member of staff when neccessary.

Each guidance staff is responsible for different classes. Parents can make contact with the guidance staff allocated to their young person through phone or email if they have any queries.

Our guidance team also work with a range of external agencies such as social work, educational welfare officers and CAMHS.

Each student is taught Personal Social Education (PSE) one period a week by their guidance teacher.
