At Stratford College we believe wellbeing is all of our concern.

Positive health and wellness is pivotal to teaching and learning and that is why we take a whole school approach with insight and experience built across our:

  • Culture and environment
  • Curriculum
  • Policy and planning
  • Relationships and planning.

The school has a Student Support Team and a dedicated Wellbeing Curriculum that weaves through our:

  • SPHE
  • PE
  • Career Guidance
  • Digital
  • Music
  • CSPE programmes.

We also take Student Voice seriously - in our campus environment students are seen and heard.

As an educational community we believe we have a vital role to play in enabling students to stay well and reach their personal and academic potential.

We recognise that the challenges facing students, particularly at the moment, can seem overwhelming. But working together, students, teachers and parents can make a difference.
