Student Wellbeing

At La Retraite we have an extensive pastoral team dedicated to supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of our students. 

Each year group has a Head of Year who is supported by a Pastoral Support Manager for their individual year group who are non-teaching members of staff who specifically support the daily needs of our students across Year 7 – 11. 

Through referral, students may also be supported by one of our Learning Mentors; they  support pupils with a range of issues which might be academic, social or emotional in nature. 

We also have a full-time school Counsellor and an associated Mental Health in Schools Team, who support students with longer periods of therapy by referral. 

  • Our school's Designated Mental Health Lead is Mr Dominic Malins
  • Our Staff Mental Health Lead is Mrs Sarb Ruprai.
