Welfare and Wellbeing Support

Wellbeing and welfare support is critical at Glantaf as we seek to support any member of the school community who may find life difficult or feel challenged by matters within or outside of school. A core part of our pastoral and academic support is the role of the Personal Tutor who remains with each registration class from the day pupils start at Glantaf in Yr7 until Yr11 and at times also into Sixth Form study.

Each year group is also led by a Progress and Wellbeing Lead which you can contact in case of query or concern.

In addition we are very aware that children and young people (as well as adults) do require additional support or advice at difficult times. These can include situations where pupils can feel overwhelmed by stress, over-anxiety, feeling of isolation, boredom or loss. At Glantaf we aim to promote positive mental health strategies with a host of excellent resources and practical strategies

The school can offer:

  • Meeting with your Progress & Wellbeing Lead (Head of year)
  • Time-out cards
  • Peer Mentor or Coach from Yrs 12 or 13
  • Key Worker
  • Time out in our “Hafan” (Nurture Centre)
