Wellbeing Hub at Holy Rood RC High School
The aim of the wellbeing hub is to provide a nurturing educational environment where young people can improve their achievement and experience success.
The wellbeing hub is a learning space for pupils who need extra support with social, emotional and behavioural needs.
The wellbeing hub staff are experienced in supporting young people to:
- Improve their mental health and wellbeing
- Develop their life and work skills
- Help pupils achieve in society
- Every pupil attending the WBH for any part of their school timetable will have a plan in place with targets set specific to their needs. This will be discussed with parents by the professionals involved, through the GIRFEC process.
