Student Health & Wellbeing

Within the British School of Tashkent pastoral care is paramount to ensure that a child feels fully supported throughout their education. Pupils also follow a PSHE/PLP curriculum which considers Health and Wellbeing.

 

Pastoral Care

Throughout our school pupils will receive pastoral care from their Phase Leader (Years 7-9 – KS3, Years 10 and 11 – KS4). Phase Leaders act as a direct support for pupils and are available at all times to help pupils with any problems/issues they may face.

During Year 6 the KS3 Leader begins to build their relationship with the pupils by arranging a “Transition Day” which allows the pupils to experience a day at high school before they officially begin to attend. The KS3 Leader also meets the Year 6 teachers at various points throughout the year. At these meetings each Year 6 pupil is discussed to ensure that the correct support is being provided to help each pupil integrate into Secondary School life.

Our pastoral team strive to ensure that an ethos and climate of trust is created and that pupils know that they always have a safe place within the school to go to where they will be listened to. Phase Leaders also monitor each pupil's academic journey throughout their education.

Phase Leaders monitor attendance, attainment, progress and behavior. During each term Phase Leaders take time to read each child’s report card. The Leader will then decide if they need to speak to the pupil individually regarding any particular subject, or with the pupil and the Head of Secondary or if a parental meeting should occur. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss how as a school we can help to support the child to improve in class. It is essential that our Phase Leaders have an excellent relationship with parents and that our parents feel able to discuss their child’s progress with their child’s leader throughout the year.

At the end of Year 9 pupils are carefully guided through our options process. Parents are invited to attend an Options Evening which explains the subject options available to pupils. Pupils also complete an Options Interview with their Phase Leader where both careers and further education routes are discussed. This information is recorded and the same process will occur for future year groups. It is our aim to ensure that each of our pupils reaches a positive career destination.

When pupils are in our sixth form they will be guided throughout the UCAS process. Pupils will receive weekly guidance in relation to completing their Personal Statements. 

Throughout a child’s journey in BST they will be provided with opportunities to become more widely involved in our school. Pupils have the opportunity to become both prefects and members of the school council. Pupils also have the opportunity to become involved in enrichment programmes such as “The Duke of Edinburgh” award which will also aid them in their journey to further education.

Support Groups

Throughout the year various support groups will be offered to pupils who feel they are struggling in school. These groups are created to help our pupils and operate on a voluntary basis. Last year the school successfully ran a “Give Us a Break” group which helped children who were struggling with their home-life or struggled socially in school. We are also currently running an Emotional Literacy group which is helping pupils who have asked for support in relation to controlling their anger. This year the school plans to run groups focusing on “Growth Mindset” and “Anxiety and Exam Stress”.

Health and Wellbeing

Our Pastoral care team ensure that support is being provided throughout the year in relation to Emotional Wellbeing. We also consider this in both our schemes of work for PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) and PLP (Personal Learning Planning).

In PSHE pupils complete lessons focusing on Healthy Relationships, Emotional Wellbeing, Substance Misuse and Planning for Choices and Changes. In PLP pupils complete lessons on Careers, Achievements, Target Setting and Study Skills.

Topics which are covered in PSHE include; Drugs, Smoking, Alcohol, Bullying, Stress, Self-image and Homelessness. In PLP topics include exploring, career paths and occupations, target setting, experimenting with various study skills and writing a CV. 

Form tutors act as first level guidance staff and also offer support and guidance to our pupils. All form tutors register their pupils and teach PSHE/PLP on a weekly basis.
