We share our pastoral support infographic to show the web of support at Seaford.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The aim of the week is to help shine a light on the importance of people’s mental health.
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.
Jo Forman, Seaford’s Director of Safeguarding, Wellbeing and Resilience, said: “I joined Seaford in September and what I have been really impressed with is how pastoral care and wellbeing is embedded in Seaford’s culture. Everyone plays their part in this on a daily basis. Seaford's wellbeing programme is embedded in everything we do and it is the interactions that our staff and students have with each other on a daily basis that makes the difference. Crucially our pastoral and wellbeing initiatives are tailored to the students, and offer flexibility according to need and what works.
Currently, with the exam season in full swing, we are helping students navigate this important time in their lives. Our message for Mental Health Awareness Week is that we are here to listen and to make students feel heard. If you’d like to talk, I encourage you to take a look at this infographic and identify someone that you feel comfortable with and ask them for a chat.”
