Student Wellbeing

At CSC we are committed to ensuring the health and Wellbeing of our students and their families. We understand that students and their families may face difficulties that can cause them distress and put pressure on our students. This may impact their ability to learn or be at school. Students may have their own support networks in place and be able to overcome these adversities. However, some students may need some extra support or help being linked in with another support service to get them through a particular hard situation.

At CSC we have a wellbeing team to support all our students, including the following:
