At Abbey College ‘Every Child Matters’, and we pride ourselves on our high standards of pastoral care. Each student is treated as an individual and supported to achieve the highest standards they are capable of.

Your child's form tutor is their first port of call for any concern that they might have.  Our Welfare Team are available to provide support during lunch and break time for identified students to manage their emotions, resolve conflicts effectively or simply to provide an opportunity for a quiet chat. Alternatively, concerns or worries can be reported using the buttons in the 'Reporting a Concern' box.

We have trained a small group of our students to act as peer mediators.  They support students in overcoming conflict and friendship issues.  The aim of this is to model positive problem solving skills as well as preventing friendship problems from escalating into bullying. This can be requested using the button in the 'Reporting a Concern' box.
