Pastoral care is an essential part of the school’s ethos and is central to academic success. We are a caring, supportive and inclusive school and we foster an environment where ‘every child has the right to feel comfortable’ and that all students play a part in the KES community.
As well as having a strong support network of staff who can help any students that may have concerns around bullying, we also have the Anti-Bullying Council.
The Anti-Bullying Council is made up of a group of Year 11 students - the Anti-Bullying and Wellbeing Prefects - and is held in J9 every break time.
It is a safe space for students to talk to their peers about any issues they are having.
The Council will report any incidents that need to be dealt with directly to Mrs Howe, as she leads the Anti-Bullying Council.
Anyone that visits the Council for support, can be assigned an Anti-Bullying Council Mentor who will check in on them and provide them with someone they can talk to if they are having a bad day.
Our Anti-Bullying and Wellbeing Prefects take part in The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme and are trained to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. The programme's anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to a sustainable and youth-led approach. For further information, visit their website via the link below, or view the pdf below to find out more about the journey to becoming an Anti-Bullying Ambassador:
