Pastoral Care

Mental Well Being – Students & Families

It is always important to look after our mental health and well-being, however right now we are all facing extremely difficult challenges. Everyone needs to remember we are all in this together and the “Rhyddings Family” are here to support each and every one of you.

No one is alone and everyone needs support at some point and that’s OK.

We have included links to a range of services/websites that are available for support as well as offering activities for students and families alike. Please remember everyone will have days that are good and some that are not so good and that’s also OK.

Together we can get through this uncertain time. Please all stay safe and always talk to someone.

Take care,

Mrs Cryne, Mental Health First Aider.

 The School House system

Rhyddings uses a horizontal form system for Years 7 – 11, meaning that students are in form groups of the same ages. Every pupil is part of a House Continent system so that pupils from all year groups have an opportunity to work together, and in particular support our youngest pupils and foster a sense of belonging. Older students can apply to become Form Buddies.

In Year 11, students use form time not just for registration and for being given daily notices, but as short and frequent targeted revision sessions. Year 11 form tutors are all core subject teachers, overseen by Year 11 Progress Leader Mrs O’Loughlin. The form groups change throughout the year in order to allow students to work with teachers of the subjects they need the most assistance with at the time.
