Pastoral Care/Wellbeing

In order for us to support the wellbeing of our students and staff, there are a number of different avenues open for advice and help at The Cotswold School.

Communication is key

Our students and their families are able to speak to staff, including personal tutors, Heads of Year and our pastoral team. In addition, the School Nurse, Karen visits the School every Wednesday between 1.20 pm and 2.00 pm. She can be found in the Health Office which is by the Learning Support and Hub rooms. If you need to contact the School Nurse out of these times, please call 0300 421 8906.
