Summer Wellbeing Support for pupils

The summer holidays can be a difficult time for some of our pupils when school is closed for the summer holidays. It is very important that our pupils know that there are people and organisations that they can reach out to if they have any issues at all and cannot talk to anyone else. In addition, if any pupil feels that they are in danger at all, they should call the police on 999. For any other issues, the following organisations should be able to provide support:

Childline 0800 1111
The Samaritans 116123
Papyrus 07860039967

Bromley Children’s services (Monday – Friday 8.30am – 5.00pm): 020 8461 7373 / 7379
Out of hours / weekends / public holidays: 0300 303 8671

SMT will check their emails from time to time over the holiday period, but may not be able to provide immediate support.

Pupil Voice

Pupil Voice encourages our pupils to become involved in the planning and decision-making processes at Farringtons.

We aim to develop a culture of pupil leadership: encouraging pupils to take on leadership roles and responsibilities within the school community, through the prefect system and the pupil council, when considering ways in which we can continue to improve every pupil’s school experience. By fostering a culture of pupil leadership, we hope to encourage pupils to take an active role in shaping the school as we move forward. The pupil council is a body made up of elected form captains who understand the importance of their role as a representative for their peers.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupil input and feedback, giving young people the chance to share their opinions, ideas, and feedback on a regular basis. Through the pupil council we aim to discuss topics which affect them directly, such as curriculum, teaching and learning, and school policies. By incorporating pupil input and feedback into school decision-making, Farringtons can ensure that our practices are in line with pupil needs and interests.

We ensure that all pupils, regardless of their background or ability, have an equal opportunity to participate in pupil voice. This could involve providing support for pupils with special educational needs or involving pupils from diverse backgrounds in leadership positions. Having representatives from the equality, diversity and inclusion focus group, from the Eco-Committee and the boarding community means we can develop our inclusiveness, ensuring that all pupils in Farringtons have a voice and are able to contribute to the school community.
