Our Staff

Ms J Parish

Assistant Headteacher

I am currently working alongside colleagues on the Leadership Group and wider staff to support our Personal Development initiatives. I am responsible for organising the content of our Culture, Development and Welfare (CDW) sessions held Monday to Thursday after lineup. We have covered some interesting and thought-provoking topics including resilience and coping strategies, gambling, support for mental health and a celebration of black British history for Black History Month.

In terms of mental health support, as a school, we think that it is really important to help our students to help each other as life returns to some kind of normalcy; we need our friends more than ever. The CDW programme makes use of the ‘Time To Change’ resources, giving students confidence and advice regarding the importance of listening and being there for our peers who may be struggling with their mental health, and we mark the importance of World Mental Health Day.
