Wessex Learning Trust
We want you, our students, to thrive at Nailsea School, we want you to be aspirational individuals, with a belief in yourself to be successful. We recognise that ‘success’ has a range of meanings and that it can only be measured by the achievement of you as an individual.
In order for you to be all of those things, we understand that your wellbeing has to be our priority. There are lots of ways to maintain good wellbeing, whether it’s through exercise, expanding your friendship groups and life experience through a range of activities, managing your workload, or finding the right person to talk to.
Our pastoral team, your tutor, Head of House, or any of the Safeguarding Team are here to help, please do approach them for advice and guidance.
If you or anyone you know is at risk of harm then you must let a member of staff know. You can tell any member of staff about your concerns. They then may pass it on to a member of the safeguarding team.
The email address for non-urgent matters is email@example.com but it is always best to talk with one of the team in person.
