Happy. Curious. Proud.
At Gidea Park Prep School, the wellbeing of our pupils is at the forefront of our educational philosophy. We strive to create a nurturing and caring environment where every student feels valued, supported, and safe. Our holistic approach to pupil wellbeing encompasses their physical, emotional, and mental health.
We prioritise the development of positive relationships, fostering a sense of belonging and inclusion among our students. Our dedicated pastoral team works closely with teachers, parents, and external professionals to ensure that each pupil's wellbeing needs are met. We provide a range of support services, including counselling, mentoring, and wellbeing workshops, to address any challenges or concerns that may arise.
Wellbeing is integrated into the fabric of our curriculum, with a focus on social and emotional learning, mindfulness, and promoting healthy lifestyles. We encourage open dialogue and create opportunities for students to express themselves, develop resilience, and build strong interpersonal skills.
Safeguarding at Gidea Park
At Gidea Park Prep, the well-being and safety of our pupils is of paramount importance to us and we take all areas of this very seriously. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We follow all Safer Recruitment procedures to recruit and manage our staff.
All our staff are aware that they have a responsibility to identify pupils who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm. Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.
Mr Douglas is the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Gidea Park Prep, and he welcomes any concerns or questions regarding the safety of children being brought to his attention. The Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Mr Ward, Deputy Head. The Designated Safeguarding Lead for EYFS is Miss Ganesathas (Nursery Manager).
