Wellbeing

Wellbeing

We are known for our leading approach to wellbeing – it is the most important thing that we do. Care and support for each other lies at the core of Caterham School. We are one of just a few UK schools which dedicates weekly timetabled lessons to a range of wellbeing topics.

The Caterham Wellbeing Programme progresses as our young people journey through the school so that by the time they leave the Sixth Form, they are prepared, resilient and ready for the opportunities and challenges ahead. Our pupils know they have a voice that is listened to by teachers and fellow pupils. 

 

Initiatives such as School Council, Digital Council, Study Buddy and proactive pastoral discussion groups are centre stage in school life here. Within structures such as these our pupils find their voice and develop skills that will last a lifetime.

Caterham’s unique approach to Learning and Teaching also augments our strong pastoral care. Pupils are coached and mentored throughout their time at school and encouraged to adopt a positive approach to every aspect of life. They know that their school is a safe and supportive place where they can try their best and make mistakes as a healthy and important part of learning and developing their skills. Mindfulness is also a promoted to both pupils and staff.
