Personal Development, Welfare and Safety Advice

Parents have the biggest single influence on their children’s lives and are their children’s prime educators. Parental encouragement and support are crucial if children are to do well in school. Research clearly shows that children whose parents are involved and support them in their education, at all stages, do better at school and later in life. 

In this section, you will find information and advice that supports the work we are doing at Valentines, in improving the personal development, behaviour and welfare of all our children and young people.  Each information booklet covers statutory and contextual issues faced by young people and provides ways for schools, parents and pupils to help each other to keep our children safe.
