Sutton Grammar School

Student Wellbeing

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. We want to ensure that you have a safe and welcoming school environment where you feel respected and valued.

 

Your Wellbeing

Emotional Wellbeing is a state of positive mental health and wellness. It can include your confidence, supportive and positive relationships with others, and a sense of understanding your own emotions.

At Sutton Grammar School, we recognise that there are times when you may need some extra support and help to manage unfamiliar situations and feelings. Who can you talk to in school?

  • Your Form Tutor
  • Your Head of Year
  • A member of the Safeguarding Team
  • Our Student Support Officer- based in the Compass Room
  • Any member of staff in the school community will be willing to listen and try to help you if you ask them

The Pastoral Team is very experienced and will be able to provide you with support in school. We aim to support you in every way we can and can point you in the direction of specialist support or external services.

Many organisations also provide support for young people, whether that is someone to talk to, finding out more information about something or reporting abuse. If you follow the link below, you will see support for several different areas, including mental health, online safety, drugs and alcohol and sexual abuse support.

Support Outside of School Hours

If you need support at the weekend or during the school holidays, you can access many sources of support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can find a list of these here:

Urgent Mental Health Support

In an emergency, contact the police, 999.

 

Reporting a concern

If you have heard something you are uncomfortable with at school, report it via the ‘Hear it? Report it!’ system so we can strive to ensure the school is safe and happy for all. This can be found on the Personal Development page of the school website, and there is also a link to this on the VLE homepage. You can also talk to your form tutor or Head of Year.

If you are worried about anything, don’t feel safe, or are worried about the safety of another student, you can talk to a member of the Safeguarding Team.

We recognise that you may want to report concerns about a student from our community but may not want to talk directly to a staff member. You can even report anonymously. Please fill in the form below and this will be sent to a member of the Safeguarding Team.
