Pastoral talks for Parents: The Self-Esteem Team

Thursday 23 February 2023

On Monday 20 February, we welcomed Alex from The Self-Esteem Team for the first in a series of talks for parents and staff on pastoral themes.

As a teacher and parent, Alex knows first-hand the challenges young people face today, and is able to share valuable tips on how to ‘handle big emotions, dial down anxiety, and manage change’.

The event was very well received, and several parents commented on how helpful it was to have pragmatic, takeaway solutions that could be instantly implemented.

Look out for communications from Mrs Stokes, Deputy Head Pastoral, regarding forthcoming speaker events.


“Thank you so much for a really informative and interesting talk this afternoon. It was helpful to have the ‘science’ of teenagers explained in such straightforward terms. I definitely took away a number of strategies and tips that I hope will help our family navigate the next few years.”


“It was a really helpful talk with plenty of practical takeaways for girls and boys...Thank you for organising...”
