Pastoral Care


Edge Grove School is committed to providing a healthy and caring environment that promotes and supports the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and stakeholders. Positive mental health is vital to what we do at school; it underpins the crucial work carried out to support pupils and their families.

By considering pupil and staff wellbeing in all aspects of school life, a positive, healthy environment can be created that improves pupil engagement, performance and achievement which in turn gives everyone an opportunity to develop and achieve their full potential.

This year we are working incredibly hard to achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

This whole-school award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both pupils and staff.

The award focuses on changing the long-term culture of a school, and embeds an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of everyone.

By working towards this award, our school can:

  • Show our commitment to promoting mental health as part of regular school life

  • Improve the emotional wellbeing of our school community

  • Ensure mental health problems are identified early and effective support provided

  • Offer provision and interventions that matches the needs of our school community

  • Engage the whole-school community in the importance of mental health awareness

  • Obtain the views of parents, pupils  and staff on mental health

Edge Grove School will work closely with the whole of the school community to support positive mental health and wellbeing for all – pupils, staff, parents and families.

“The importance of being a good, caring member of the school community is evident through the way pupils engage and cooperate with each other. They freely and willingly support their classmates in their learning and help each other to succeed”
