Students learn to support peers

A group of 32 Nottingham Girls’ High School students will now be better able to support their peers after a coaching session with educational psychologist Dr Val Besag.

Parents and staff also sat in on the seminar led by Dr Besag to understand problems that their children may be having, what they should be looking for and how they could support them.

The school contacted Dr Besag as part of its pastoral care programme, designed to support the personal, moral and social development of students.

Headteacher, Sue Gorham said: “Investing in a renowned and well-respected educational psychologist is demonstrative of our commitment as a school to providing first-rate pastoral care.

“Wherever they are, girls will encounter friendship troubles in one way or another – it’s simply a part of life — but with this network of support firmly in place, designed with girls in mind, we can help them along the way.”
