This guidance is intended to acknowledge and address some of the concerns raised in the recent SCMH Survey.

We consider key issues regarding the welcoming of new Staff & Students, Mentorship and development, Mental Well-being, and easy access to key information. 

Induction process

We have a school online induction portal which holds key information and processes. All line managers are encouraged to be present on the day of new staff/students' first day at the school to help them familiarise themselves with their new working environment and support them in becoming part of our team.
