At Sharples School, the wellbeing of our pupils is paramount. We work hard to provide guidance and support across the school. We want our pupils to become resilient young people, equipped with knowledge to guide them through their adolescent school life and beyond. In this section you will find key information for Parents/Carers and pupils, outlining our wellbeing support system in school.
How we support our students
At Sharples School, we pride ourselves on the excellent pastoral care and support we provide, ensuring that every student is happy, safe and settled in their environment, and that all students develop into confident, hard-working, respectful and ambitious young people.
Our strong pastoral support network includes Year Co-Ordinators, Pupil Intervention officer, In-school Behaviour Mentor, form tutors as well as a dedicated pastoral team. We cater to the individual needs of each and every student at Sharples School.
At Sharples School, we offer a two-day transition for every Year 6 student. In addition to this we host our very own free one week summer school, additional welcome evenings and settling in evenings throughout the year, so it doesn’t matter if you’re the only student coming from your primary, you will settle and have lots of friends by the time you start in Year 7.
As well as the students, we want to support parents and carers as much as possible. For a Year 6 parent it can be as nerve racking as it is for the student transitioning into secondary education. We welcome parents and carers to ring, email or visit Sharples School as often as they like.
