We believe that well-being is central to developing welcoming communities; encouraging self-belief and resilience amongst our staff and our students and empowering individuals to succeed.

Each Orbital school has a well-being committee tasked to support staff and students and, where appropriate, we have group-wide initiatives. This approach ensures that we are listening to the diverse needs of our schools and respecting the cultures in which they operate.

Our students are equally well supported and we follow the KSCIE safeguarding guidance across all of our schools with annual updates.
