The unique Beaulieu environment is rooted in Gospel Values and the love and care for our students is intrinsic in all we do. The pastoral care and wellbeing of our students is our biggest concern and all staff members share in this. Our staff and teachers are committed to taking a holistic view of every student – we know that confident, healthy minds have a thirst for knowledge and a love and appreciation of their community and the wider world around them. Our focus is on the whole child and their individual needs and, as a result, every child has the opportunity to succeed.
Students joining us at Year 7 enjoy a flexible and extended transition process to support their integration into Beaulieu.
At Secondary level, every student is allocated a Mentor. These Mentors work closely with our students, growing to know them well and providing academic and personal guidance and support.
Each year group is allocated a full time, non-teaching Student Services Officer to cater for the wellbeing of each student and to assist with any pastoral needs our students may have.
Working closely with our teachers and our Student Services Officers, the Learning Support Team collaborates with students and parents to aid success and ensure positive development.
At Beaulieu, we have an established Learning Centre, with dedicated classroom space for the delivery of support sessions, as well as a programme of targeted interventions to support students in literacy and numeracy. Our Head of the Learning Centre and the dedicated team work tirelessly across the whole School, supporting any cognitive, physical, social or emotional needs that may arise and developing specific learning programmes that most effectively meet any requirements. We are also very proud of our ELSA provision (Emotional Literacy Support Assistants), and our fully trained team of eight ELSAs focus exclusively on the wellbeing of the students in our care.
Working closely with our teachers and our Student Services Officers, the Learning Support Team collaborates with our students and their parents to determine the best educational or social programme to aid their success and ensure positive development. We also have strong working relationships with a variety of external agencies to ensure the most appropriate and comprehensive care for our students.
