Positive Education, Change and Fear: Creating a whole school approach in a Secondary Context

In 2016 Avonside Girls' High School underwent a massive review of pastoral and wellbeing systems in the school.  The review, involving community consultation, student and staff voice, led to huge changes in our school structure, curriculum and systems for student and staff care.
