At Wymondham High we are very proud of the behaviour of our pupils. We believe it is vitally important to ensure the pupils and students are treated consistently and that they understand the reasons for our school rules. As a community we have clear guidelines about what happens when a child makes the wrong choices. These are contained in the Behaviour Policy [below]. We have a dedicated Inclusion team whose role it is to ensure that behaviour is modified to allow pupils to engage in lessons and make excellent progress. The team is led by our Assistant Principal-Inclusion [Mr Tarr]. The Inclusion Team do not have teaching commitments and can therefore dedicate all of their time towards addressing any issues that arise.
In addition to our Inclusion Team, we have a dedicated wellbeing service , which includes a Child Protection Officer, School Counsellor and Mental Health Worker. These adults support our young people to ensure that any issues they face can be resolved. Where this is not possible, referrals to external services can be made.
Details of the counselling service can be found here: Counselling Leaflet.
We take incidents of bullying very seriously and have a low number of recorded incidents of bullying across the Academy. However, we apply a consistent standard to ensure that pupils within our community do not adopt aggressive attitudes toward one another. Our values are instilled within our anti-bullying policy [below].
