Towers Welfare & Safeguarding

1x a0 poster version 1 .pdf


At Towers School we pride ourselves on delivering a fully inclusive and holistic approach to welfare and support. There is no point having an academic curriculum that is fit for purpose, provides students with bespoke pathways and offers them endless opportunities, if we are not developing emotionally, mentally and physically healthy students.

Keeping problems manageable and in perspective is critical. Effective welfare is about being calm and rational. Knee-jerk, short term and reactive decision making may provide an instant fix, but  this approach very rarely leads to the long term and substantive solutions that best support student well-being.
