GSO Test



It is so important to take care of our mental health and well-being and it is important that we recognise there are things that we can do to promote a positive mental health and well-being. One of our pastoral priorities is to ensure that we are educating all students about mental health and well-being and providing them with ways in which they can self-regulate. Of course, we will continue to support students who need specialist support but we are placing a large emphasis on education and self-regulation.
