Positive Relationships

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Our ambition at Selkirk High School is to empower every student to achieve their unique and magnificent potential whatever their background, ability or identity.

Selkirk High School is for everyone. We strive to ensure all our students know how to be safe, well and happy. 

All students, whatever their identity, background or ability, are individually supported to be who they want to be and encouraged to be ambitious in their learning and personal development.

Our shared values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience and Relationships lie at the heart of all our efforts at Selkirk High School. Every individual in the school community is challenged to put our values into action in all they do.

The inclusive ethos of the school is continually supported through our Ready Respectful Safe approach to Positive Relationships as well as our programme of Values In Action assemblies and pupil mentoring and pupil leadership activities. 

Pastoral staff, through Personal and Social Education (PSE) classes, ensure that your child knows how to access support and is also aware of their responsibility to  report any experience of bullying behaviour to their Guidance Teacher or a member of staff.

We are determined that every student is able to be who they really are without fear of prejudice. We therefore have a zero tolerance approach to bullying behaviour and ask staff, pupils, parents and partners to work together to ensure relationships are restored whenever they break down. The guidance in this document summarises our approach. 

As ever, all members of our community are invited to get in touch without hesitation if they have any queries.
