Signposting and Further Support
After each lesson students are shown signposting information, which guides them to appropriate in-school and out-of-school sources of advice and guidance.
In school, students can speak to their form tutor, their Fantastic Futures teacher or a member of our pastoral team in the first instance. Alternatively, they can speak to a member of our inclusion and safeguarding team. We also have a school nurse available.
