Student well-being is at the heart of everything we do at Castle View school. We have a range of policies and procedures in place that ensure the welfare and well-being of all of our students. Several of these policies set out expectations about good behaviour. This includes positive learning behaviour around the school and in lessons meaning that everyone feels safe and can learn.
Good behaviour includes good learning behaviour around the school, in corridors and in lessons and also rules about communication and behaving appropriately towards other students and staff. We look carefully at, for example, the appropriate use of ICT, anti-bullying and any learning, medical, emotional or social needs which may contribute to behavioural patterns.
We have a dedicated Inclusion team which dedicates itself to fostering good standards of behaviour, maintaining routines for good behaviour and intervening and investigating any incidents where behaviour falls below the standard expected. We also invest in counselling and life coaches as well as a well-designed Personal Development curriculum to assist pupils to understand and develop appropriate behaviour.
Regular attendance is also a vital part of securing student well-being. Students at our school are expected to have an excellent attendance record. In order to best ensure the welfare of students, attendance is checked every morning and afternoon for every student and contact is made with parents and carers where there is non-attendance. In order to support the school, we request that parents or carers contact the Academy by 9am by telephone in the event of absence.
Appropriate medical care is provided during normal academy hours by our Medical Assistant. Many other members of staff are also trained in first aid.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the well-being of your own son/daughter please initially contact your son or daughter's form tutor. If you have a safeguarding concern then please refer to our safeguarding section. This includes information about how to contact our designated safeguarding leaders.
