Student Services at Whitefield School

Student Services at Whitefield School underpins the support systems which ensure students thrive and flourish academically, socially and emotionally.  The focus is key pastoral support to enable teachers to focus on quality first teaching. It provides students with a safe, supportive environment and focuses on student well-being as well as their day to day organisation and readiness to learn.
