School Counsellor

The school counsellor is a professional counsellor from Familyworks who supports pupils with particular challenges. The counsellor talks to individual pupils to help them with whatever difficulties they are facing. Pupils can self-refer to the college's counsellor or referrals can be made by pastoral staff.

Drugs Education Policy

St Pius X College is committed to protecting and promoting the health and safety of all members of the college and to adopting a consistent approach to drug related issues. In the interests of health and safety, neither the misuse of drugs or alochol by the members of the school nor the illegal supply of these substances on school premises is condoned. Any instances of possession, use or supply will be regarded with the utmost seriousness.

Online Safety

The e-safety policy identifies the risks involved in using the internet and the wide range of new technologies available. The internet and other technologies are embedded in pupils' lives, not just in college but outside as well, and the college has a duty to help prepare pupils to benefit safely from the opportunities that these may present. The college is committed to developing a set of safe and responsible behaviours by all members of the college community that will enable us to reduce the risks whilst continuing to benefit from the opportunities.
