Newhaven School


Student Welfare

The majority of students who attend Newhaven bring a range of issues that present as barriers to their learning.

We firmly believe that, unless such barriers are addressed and hopefully removed, education is secondary and progress will be limited. This is why we invest heavily in a wide range of services, both internally and externally, to support our students with all that life can throw at them. Within Newhaven all students will have: a member of staff who acts as that student's mentor, meeting them every two weeks to review progress and welfare while also being the main point of contact with the home; access to skilled support staff and learning mentors; a pastoral manager who oversees all aspects of a student's welfare including attending meetings off site; 'in house' access to a range of external services including Clinical Psychologists, Family Therapists, Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychologists, School Nurse, Attendance Advisory Officers and Prospects Careers advice.

NSPCC - Staying Safe Online and on Mobile

The growing phenomenon of young people sharing inappropriate pictures of themselves online has become a real issue, with recent reports suggesting that children as young as 7 have been involved. The NSPCC has produced a guide to help parents talk with their children about the dangers and legalities surrounding this, to help empower them to say “no” to requests. Access to this guide can be found here.
