School counselling service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.

A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

The school counselling service can:

  • support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
  • help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour
  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

School counselling is confidential.

For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, please contact your school.

Year Adviser and School Counsellor

Each year group has a Year Adviser whose role is one of care. Parents are encouraged to contact the Year Adviser regarding matters of general progress and adjustment to the school. All matters are dealt with sympathetically and in confidence.

The School Counsellor is at the school (four days a week) and provides a range of skills and knowledge to help students and parents. Interviews are arranged directly with the Counsellor.
