No matter if they’re in the Lower School or Upper School, there is nothing more important than the happiness and wellbeing of the children in our care. This is the highest priority and all our staff are responsible for ensuring that our pupils can learn in a happy and tolerant environment. Our Leadership Team and Inclusion Manager provide the oversight on all pastoral matters.
Pupils are encouraged to seek support and guidance whenever needed. Our Inclusion Manager welcomes in any pupil who wishes to discuss anything on their mind. In addition, there is a worry box where children can post a concern which is checked daily. Children’s worries are always taken seriously and we have a zero-tolerance approach to any bullying or unkind behaviour. With regular focuses in assembly and class, we nurture a community of openness and thoughtfulness for others.
To support our pupils, Clifton Lodge has partnered with HelpingKids Ltd, offering life coaching for children. Amy Moser holds individual sessions with pupils at the school to help children with anxieties, behaviour issues and confidence. In addition, Amy runs regular parenting seminars at the school to give parents interactive support and guidance.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment.
The safety of our pupils is our number one priority. Any concerns or signs of abuse or neglect must be immediately reported to one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL).

Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility. If we are to be effective then each professional or adult in contact with our school will play their part in full.
If you are concerned about the well-being of any child at the school, please approach one of these members of staff to discuss your concerns. All adults have a responsibility to ensure all children with whom they have contact are safe and well cared for.
