We want every student to be happy and successful at PACA.
Almost every student runs into difficulty on occasion, either in their studies, with the challenges presented by growing up, with their friendship groups or challenges at home.
We are here to help. We encourage all students, parents and carers to talk to us if you have any concerns. Please talk to your form tutor or, if you prefer, any other member of staff. We recognise these conversations can be challenging and assure you that all our staff are highly aware and trained in how to manage confidential or difficult conversations.
We also encourage every student and every member of our community to look out for others in difficulty and support them, either by talking to them or by informing a teacher to make sure they are aware of your concerns.
Most difficulties are short term and can be managed and supported. If a student needs extra help we know where to find it and how to access it. Our top priority is keeping young people safe so if you think a young person is in imminent danger please don’t delay in calling 999 for an emergency.
