Student care

We’re a supportive, caring community working hard to meet all pupil needs. Life in Dallam’s school community is anchored around every child’s emotional and physical health and wellbeing.  

Whether focusing on academic skills and achievements or our pastoral approach and actions, we believe robust, positive relationships are fundamental. Those connections and interactions with our whole school team empower our students to thrive. 

We’ve recently enhanced two aspects of our student experience. Firstly, we’ve dedicated more meaningful time for students to connect with their form tutors, fostering stronger relationships and support systems within our school community. 

Secondly, we’ve expanded our offer of school outings and extracurricular activities, providing a wide range of enriching opportunities for students to explore their interests beyond the classroom. 

These initiatives are complemented by our commitment to delivering a rich and well-balanced curriculum.  

We also encourage students to take on diverse leadership roles, empowering them with independence and communication skills to thrive beyond their time at Dallam.

Health, mental health and safeguarding resources

We’ve pulled together a list of trusted websites with lots of helpful advice on specific issues, including dealing with exam stress, bullying, Internet safety, drug and alcohol abuse advice and healthy eating and eating disorders.    

If you have any worries about your child’s wellbeing please contact our pastoral team so we can work together to help and support your child. 

Reporting an absence  

Our school day begins at 8.50am. 

If your child is going to be absent from school, you must report the reason to their pastoral co-ordinator via Synergy before 8.40am, or simply email   

If your child is absent and we have not heard from you, we will text you as part of our safeguarding process.
