Safeguarding & Pastoral Care


Here at the Bridge Short Stay School Safeguarding is of paramount importance. All staff regularly undertake training to develop their knowledge to support our students at school or at home. The safeguarding team also provide support to families who may be facing difficulties in their lives or in supporting their children. 

We also want to ensure the mental health and wellbeing of our students is good.  We are able to provide a range of different support options for mental health and wellbeing difficulties either in school by trained staff or by referral to other agencies.  Please contact us through the school landline to discuss if you feel that your child needs further support for their mental health and wellbeing.

We regularly signpost students and families to helpful information on Twitter or in Newsletters.  Below are also a few links for help and advice that you might find useful:
