Wellbeing / Pastoral Care

Chanel College has a strong commitment to a school-wide system of care for the wellbeing of our students.

It is part of the special character and philosophy of the college. Our focus on the personal development of students includes encouraging:

  • A feeling of success and enjoyment
  • Confidence and self-belief
  • A sense of responsibility for themselves and others
  • A positive, self-reliant attitude to learning
  • Individuality and drive for individual success

We recognise that every student is different and that success looks different for everyone. We strive to make sure that each student will be successful and more than just a school statistic

Through the delivery of the curriculum and our pastoral programmes we equip students with the knowledge and skills to foster positive emotions, engage in and appreciate new learning, value and build caring relationships, develop a sense of purpose and meaning, and pursue worthwhile endeavours.

Deans, form teachers and teachers are on hand to help deal with concerns of an academic, co-curricular, or personal nature, or with stress-related problems. Other professionals available for one-on-one conversations with students and parents include the Senior Leadership Team, Head of Subjects/Departments, Careers Advisor, Guidance Counsellor and the School Nurse.

We take a team approach to supporting our students and maintain a professional level of confidentiality at all times.
