Pupil Wellbeing


Pupils with better health and wellbeing are more likely to achieve better academic outcomes. This is particularly true of those who attend school for over 95% of the time. The wellbeing of our pupils is our most important priority. We have an established teaching and non-teaching wellbeing team who ensure our pupils are happy and healthy. We have heavily invested in non-teaching staff to ensure that they have the time to make sure this happens.

Supporting Pupil Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our pupils is our number one priority at Pontypridd High School. As a school, we are here to support all pupils with both in-school support services and external agencies.

In school, we have the following available to pupils:

  • Dedicated Wellbeing Managers to provide daily support
  • ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants) 6-week courses
  • Eye 2 Eye Counselling Service

Pupils and parents/carers are able to request the above support for pupils.  Please contact a member of the wellbeing team to discuss referrals.
 

The following links are available for pupils and parents and carers to access further support outside of school:
