KS5 Wellbeing Lead is an exciting new role at our school, created using grant funding we are thrilled to have received from the MD Educational Foundation. The KS5 Wellbeing Lead will support sixth form students, parents and teachers with promoting positive wellbeing, providing mental health support, and better navigating the challenges faced by so many. Working closely with the Safeguarding Leads in school, they will monitor and provide support for students identified as ‘at risk’ and will signpost students and parents to national and local mental health services where appropriate.

The Wellbeing Lead will play a key part in shaping and then running a dedicated Sixth Form wellbeing space, which will include space for group activities and personal fitness. Under the direction of the Senior Teacher responsible for EPCS6, they will design and lead interventions with both an academic and a pastoral focus, aimed at ensuring our students leave school as happy, healthy and self-confident individuals. The KS5 Wellbeing Lead will also provide tailored support for students as they make choices about their next steps beyond school, be these to university or to apprenticeships. The Wellbeing Lead will be responsible for carefully monitoring the impact of the work they complete, and will report against KPIs to the Senior Leadership Team and the MD Educational Foundation Coordinator.

Easthampstead Park is a vibrant school which prides itself on holding traditional values. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. Teaching and learning drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.

This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (November 2021), we were rated as ‘Good’ in all areas.

“Pupils enjoy coming to their happy and inclusive school. There is a strong ethos of mutual respect, courtesy and care for others."

“Pupils behave well in lessons and around school. They value the educational opportunities that they receive and want to succeed. Knowing their teachers have high expectations and want the very best for them encourages pupils to take pride in their work. Pupils confidently ask for help when they need it.”

We aspire to be rated ‘Outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community. Visits to the school prior to application are warmly welcomed.
