Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School, and to our website.
We are absolutely determined to provide an exceptional standard of education for every child that comes to our school, so that they have the opportunity to lead happy and successful lives. In order for that to happen, our students need to do two simple things - work hard and be kind.
We are a welcoming and caring school that also has exceedingly high expectations of every single one of our students. We take great pride in enabling them to grow and to flourish.
Safeguarding is defined as :
protecting children and learners from maltreatment
preventing impairment of children’s and learners’ health or development
ensuring that children and learners are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- undertaking that role so as to enable those children and learners to have optimum life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.
(Children’s Act 2004, “Working Together to Safeguard Children” )
Everyone working with students at our school treats learner’s welfare as paramount. Monmouth Comprehensive School values every individual as having equal worth and has a culture and ethos where young people are listened to and included. We promote the welfare of students by ensuring we create and maintain a safe learning environment for our students. Where there are child welfare concerns we take action to address them in partnership with other agencies where appropriate. Our curriculum contributes by developing the student’s understanding, awareness and resilience along with their sense of self, their independence and their interdependence.
The school’s approach to building, maintaining and repairing relationships is informed by our restorative mindset and our core values: Respect, Freedom with Responsibility, Independence, Security and Success.
For any further information on Safeguarding please speak to Mr D. Williams (Assistant Headteacher) at the school.
Ofsted adopts the definition of safeguarding used in the Children Act 2004 and in the Department for Education and Skills (now DfE) guidance document Working together to safeguard children, which focuses on safeguarding and promoting children’s and learners’ welfare.
Dear Parents and Students
Welcome to Monmouth Comprehensive School
In our school we encourage everyone to have the highest expectations of themselves and each other as together we Learn to Lead our Lives.
We are proud of our students’ academic achievements. Just as importantly, we are a school that cares. We believe that students need to feel comfortable and secure in order to learn and, as a school, we put as much emphasis on creating a supportive and happy environment as we do on academic success. We achieve both.
I look forward to working with you to ensure the very best learning and life for the young people in our care.
