Our School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The School expects all teaching staff, non‐teaching staff, volunteers, students and visitors to our school to share and uphold this commitment. If a child cannot feel safe they cannot learn to their full potential.
All staff are trained in Child Protection and there will never be a time where your child is alone in the boarding house. We ensure that same gender staff are on duty with the students and guarantee that in the evenings the student’s privacy is paramount. Our boarding houses are designed to create a warm and caring environment that supports the child’s emotional development. We have a zero tolerance towards bullying in this or any environment.
Personal, Social & Health Education
Personal, Social & Health Education encompasses moral, social and health activities and is delivered to all year groups. The age appropriate programme is designed to help pupils cope with change, develop skills of resilience and prepare them ultimately for life in the wider world as part of a global society.
PSHE is taught in timetabled lessons. Student voice, via the School Council (made up of student representatives from across the college), as well as input from our qualified school counsellor, plays an integral role in the choice of topics covered such as human rights, relationships, digital footprint, social justice, physical activities, healthy choices, diet and nutrition, body confidence, substance abuse, law and order and British and Malaysian values.
