Emotional and Social Development


The school utilises many strategies to support the development of pupils’ social skills and enhance self-esteem, including breakfast and after-school clubs. Through RRS the acts of friendliness and good citizenship are promoted and embedded within school. Opportunities for self-esteem and nurture groups are well provided as well as providing one-to-one counselling and mentoring where necessary.
