Wellbeing and e-Safety

We believe in teaching the girls a set of transferrable skills which they will use and apply in all aspects of life in order to establish them as strong, confident and independent young women with a zest for life and an understanding of their important role in society.

We have a Health and Wellbeing Coordinator and a dedicated medical room that is accessible to all.

The Health and Wellbeing Coordinator is responsible for providing a quick response to any health needs that the pupils may have. This includes first aid, and the holistic assessment and treatment of any illnesses that a pupil may suffer from during the school day. Pupils with long-standing health needs are met with regularly and have an individual care plan to ensure that their needs are addressed consistently, and their school life is not disrupted by illness. All of our teaching staff are trained in first aid.

Our Health and Wellbeing Coordinator is available to any pupil who wishes to discuss a worry, concern or needs emotional support at school. She also provides support for parents who have concerns about their daughter’s health or wellbeing.

 

Be SMART, think before you click!

Technology is integral to modern life and internet access is part of our daily lives at work, school and home. The online world provides an endless array of opportunities and possibilities for us to connect, explore, share and learn and the way that children and adults use these is ever-changing.  There are risks associated with new technologies and it is essential for young people and their parents and carers to understand how to reduce and manage these risks to make the most of the opportunities that the internet provides.

At the very core of our e-safety curriculum at Sarum Hall is knowing how to identify when things are unsafe and where to go if pupils find themselves in a situation they are uncomfortable with. Just like crossing the road, we don’t tell children not to do it, we teach them how to navigate the potential dangers.  We are committed to giving everyone the tools they need to develop their own sense of digital wellbeing.  Their wellbeing can be influenced by the choices they make online, the content they see, the interactions they have with others and even how long they spend engaging with technology and the internet.

At Sarum Hall, we subscribe to Childnet’s Digital Leaders training programme.  Each year, we appoint several Digital Leaders and empower them to help educate their peers about online safety.

Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online, and they are one of the first people children turn to if things go wrong. We know it can be challenging to stay on top of new developments in this area, so we hope that the advice on the following website links help.

If you are worried about online abuse or the way someone has been communicating online, let CEOP know.

The button has been developed to offer children, young people, parents/carers and professionals working with these groups with a simple and convenient mechanism for reporting abuse and gaining access to trusted online safety advice, help and support.

“Why did we choose Sarum Hall? Its reputation and our observations on the school’s value system and pastoral care, and how they raise the girls in addition to educating them. Also their commitment to music, the arts and extra-curricular activities.”

Covid-19 Curriculum

We have transferred our usual educational provision into a Remote Learning Programme which maintains the curriculum input for pupils from Reception up to Year 6. The programme replicates our days in school with live lessons delivered for all subjects. Our programme can be accessed via the Sarum Hall Remote Learning Portal. The school will remain open for the Nursery class and Key Worker children until Monday 8th March, when we welcome back pupils in all year groups.
