The health and wellbeing of our students is very important to us. In Middle School we have a Wellbeing Team which is led by Yvonne Neville, Assistant Head of Middle School. This team is made up of our Deans and wellbeing experts. This team of teachers has the dual role of working with students due to choices they have made and also in leading a mentoring programme for our young people.

Middle School Leadership croppedOne of the ways that we support the wellbeing of our students is through having clear expectations of behaviour and processes that are followed when addressing concerns.

Restorative Practice

At KingsWay School we believe that relationship is at the heart of everything we do and we therefore have a Restorative Practice discipline system. The biblical foundation for this is that God restores and redeems. The desired goal of discipline is for students to take responsibility for their own behaviour. Students are encouraged to develop their own internal restraints on behaviour, i.e. self-discipline.

A restorative school is clear in its expectations of students. When students don’t meet those expectations there is an appropriate intervention to restore a student to the correct way of doing things. Incidents are learning situations where students gain an understanding of the impact of their actions and what they need to do to put things right. It also involves teaching students what is the correct way to behave. A restorative system sweats the small incidents so that high-end incidents are less likely to occur.

We Expect Students To:

  • Respect staff, students and school property at all times
  • Respect school uniform expectations
  • Follow school rules
  • Use appropriate language, refraining from swearing, using indecent language
  • Use devices according to school expectations
  • Refrain from smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages & drug-taking.

We Aim For:

  • Issues to result in strengthened relationships (student/God, student/student, student/teacher, student/community), not weakening them
  • Wrongdoing to be owned by the wrongdoer and accountability towards the victims
  • Increasing behaviour awareness and awareness of one person’s impact on others
  • Awareness of the need to put things right
  • Restorative action
  • Personal growth and heart change
  • A climate of nurture and care
  • Retaining and involving the original relationships in the solution/consequences
  • The realisation that actions have consequences for both perpetrators and victims
  • To set high expectations for learning and behaving
  • Collective consistency and buy-in by all staff and progressively by students and families.

Restorative Practice

Health Centre

Our Health Centre is staffed by a qualified nurse who is well able to make the right decisions concerning the wellbeing of students in her care. Parents are responsible for providing the office with updated contact details and health related information concerning their children e.g. asthma, allergies and medical conditions. This includes Health Action Plans provided by your family doctor.
Any medication needed by your child while at school, either on a short or long term basis should be left with the nurse, together with clear instructions on its administration.
If children are unwell, they should be kept at home. It is the best place for them to recover. Contagious diseases and sicknesses spread quickly from student to student when they are in close proximity to one another. If a student becomes sick or injured at school parents will be contacted to arrange for them to be taken home. In the case of a serious injury or medical emergency, parents will be immediately notified and an ambulance may be called.

Pastoral Care

In the event that a family experiences significant trauma of any sort, we would appreciate sufficient information being provided to the home base teacher or the Head of School who will assist in monitoring students and caring for them. Should staff consider counselling necessary, parents will be contacted regarding the possibility of confidential counselling with one of our trained family counsellors. Parents may also contact our counsellors directly.
