Ensuring that our students are healthy, in body and mind, is always at the forefront of our hearts at Seaford College.
We’re very aware of the pressures that young people are under — greater pressures than any generation before them. So it’s important that the environment around them is a happy and healthy one, and that they feel safe and secure, both physically and mentally.
Becca Randell, an expert in children's mental health, talks about the whole school approach that Seaford has to support wellbeing and emotional resilience at our Student Wellbeing Conference.
There’s a whole school approach to wellbeing at Seaford and this comes from our Headmaster, John Green, and the web of pastoral support from tutors, Heads of Year, The Pink House Team, our Chaplain Fr Colin, subject teachers, houseparents, peer mentors, peers, support staff, independent listeners, and the senior team means nobody ‘flies under the radar’ and we provide positive interventions.
Seaford has a pastoral and wellbeing hub named the Pink House (because it’s painted pink) which is dedicated to emotional/wellbeing support and counselling for our students, located right in the heart of the campus. It’s a place where students can go to take time out and talk about how they are feeling and what they are thinking. Our Prep School has the Pink Room where the younger children can relax and chat.
