Family Wellbeing

At Olchfa, we value the positive relationships forged with parents and carers. We encourage close links with parents and carers and believe that pupils benefit when the relationship between home and school is a positive one. We also strive to make our school a place where, as adults, we model for pupils the behaviour we teach and expect. In general, we place a high importance on good manners, positive communication and mutual respect.

Whatever age your child is, and how experienced a parent you are, sometimes we all could always do with a little support and advice. In this section of the school website, we have included some parent training modules which we deliver in Olchfa. We also signpost some organisations that offer useful information and resources for parents and carers.

In addition, direct support is available for pupils from a number of areas within a school:

  • Form Tutors, Learning Leaders, Pastoral Guidance Workers and the Pupil Welfare Officer are best placed to discuss any issues. Many things can cause a change in emotional health including traumatic events (e.g. loss or separation, life changes, abuse, domestic violence or bullying).

  • Health and Wellbeing teachers have a good overview of emotional health and wellbeing and teach iThrive to all Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils.

  • Mr Andrew Charles leads on pupil emotional health and wellbeing across school and is always keen to support in any way possible.

  • Mrs Cheryl Hopkins is the Pupil Welfare Officer.

  • Mrs Hannah Vincent and Mr Matt Salmon are the Designated Safeguarding Leads.

  • Pupils can email

  • Parents/carers can email
