Student Wellbeing

We carefully support the wellbeing of our students through education, support and communication with parents. We are proud of our pastoral care. Manningtree students who have problems or worries can talk to their tutor or one of our pastoral team in the first instance.


All staff are trained in Safeguarding procedures, including recognising the signs of exploitation and radicalisation.


Safeguarding and child protection policies are reviewed annually. Please contact the school if you require further details.
