Meet the Staff

This page is currently awaiting content

My role is safeguarding and wellbeing officer, I have a varied role with many responsibilities, primarily I support the team in making referrals and attending any professional meetings requiring me to address safeguarding concerns. I also support our therapy team consisting of a school counsellor, art therapist and a speech and language therapist. The role demands that the appropriate delivery of support is assigned to the students in a meaningful manner in order to achieve the best outcomes for individuals. I also have responsibility for managing attendance and supply regular updates to the Headteacher.

Additionally, to this I conduct regular home visits to students and safe and well visits when required, my role also provides families with a link to the school and I am available to discuss concerns that arise and hopefully assign and advise any required signposting for supporting families through challenging moments.

I enjoy working for Venture academy as the staff are very dynamic and focussed around getting the best outcomes for our students. The fact that we have quick access to the therapeutic support means when we require mental health support for our students we don’t have the usual long waits that are often experienced.
