Coaching

Coaching is an important time for staff and students to work together and listen to one another offering support and advice. This time is also used to deliver key PSHCE topics as well as offering some mentoring opportunities. Coaching is a valuable mechanism in promoting good behaviour.

Coaching takes place three times a week for half an hour on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
