Wellbeing

At Eltham College

At Eltham College, our teachers, nurses, school counsellor and Chaplain ensure our students are supported academically and emotionally every day. Our nurses regularly attend form time to speak with students to discuss the importance of keeping their minds and bodies healthy, and how best to do this. Our School Counsellor takes group sessions to discuss key challenges being faced by our students, and holds one-to-one sessions with students where needed.

Our Wellbeing Curriculum is built around the ‘5Rs’ framework: Resilience, Respect, Relationships, Responsibility and Readiness. The curriculum is overseen by our Head of Wellbeing, Mrs Nicola Bilsby in the Senior School and Ms Nicola Tutchings in the Junior School. Students from Year 3 through to the Sixth Form take part in various lessons that focus on different aspects of these five areas. Details can be found in our Wellbeing curriculum.
