Wellbeing

Being the best you can be.

Student Support

We encourage students to seek support if they are worried about something. We support the view that:

  • We all have the right to feel safe all of the time
  • We can talk with someone about anything, even if it feels awful or small.

There are a number of ways that students can seek help if they are worried:

  • All students have a tutor who they meet daily
  • Students can email helpme@ketteringscienceacademy.org and a member of staff will speak to them
  • There is an anti-bullying letterbox in the library where students can leave a message
  • The school has 20 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors trained as part of  “The Diana Award - Anti-Bullying Ambassador” programme
  • The Student Support Officers are also available in their office throughout the day
  • The School Nurse holds a drop in every Monday from 1pm
  • All students have a Head of Year who they can speak to
  • The school has a full time Safeguarding Officer, Mrs Stevens, who students can speak to
  • Some students have a Learning Mentor or member of the SEN Team they can seek support from
  • Emotional Wellbeing is part of the PSHE curriculum which is delivered through Tutor Time and Assemblies/Events.
