Learning and Wellbeing Worker
At Fulford Sixth Form, supporting student wellbeing is paramount and we do this by promoting a positive and inclusive culture, operating young person focused teaching and tutorial systems as well as proactively providing individual support.
Specific ways we support young people include:
- Developing positive relationships with our students so that they feel they are known and feel comfortable in accessing support
- Supporting transitions and helping new students to Fulford familiarise themselves with the school and getting to know others
- Supporting transitions and helping students to gain study skills and developing a ‘Mindset for Success’
- Developing our Sixth Form community through working with the Sixth Form Committee to put on regular fun events throughout the year
- Providing support and guidance through regular Tutor time
- Delivering information on Wellbeing & Mental Health in assemblies and form periods
- Providing individual support and signposting around personal matters and issues of wellbeing and mental health through the dedicated Sixth Form pastoral worker
- Flexibly operating student timetables and sixth form requirements to support individual health needs
- Engaging with the wider community through charity awareness and fundraising events
- Providing easily accessible support through the Sixth Form staff team Open Door policy whereby students can receive a quick response to queries and concerns
We recognise that every student is an individual; every student has different stressors and manages the challenges differently. We look to provide support accordingly and are always here to help.
