Health and Wellbeing
During their school life pupils will be given the skills to help them sustain lifelong learning and a successful future. We develop individuals who are confident, competent and compassionate, responsive to their environment and to the concerns and needs of others.
We pride ourselves on our all through education from Nursery right through to Sixth Form, with pupils receiving high quality pastoral care and the highest standards in education during their time here.
At BHSA we want to work in partnership with our students and their families to ensure each and every girl flourishes during and beyond her time with us, capitalising on our glorious new and refurbished site and the skill and dedication of every member of staff.
Parents - please ensure that you have updated BHSA regarding your daughter / ward's health, you can do this via the SIMS app.
If you would like to discuss your child's health needs, please contact the school office on 0151 652 5777 and ask to speak to Inclusion Team Leader Miss L Cumiskay or SENDCO Miss R Kennerley.
Chathealth, launched by the 0-19 Health and Wellbeing Service in Wirral, offers 11 to 19-year olds confidential advice and support from their local school nursing service on a range of health and wellbeing issues, including anxiety, bullying, relationships and emotional health.
It does not replace face-to-face services, but particularly under the current restrictions due to COVID-19 it will make it easier and safer to get in touch with a school nurse confidentially and anonymously.
It also offers a way to get in touch for those who feel reluctant to talk about difficult or sensitive issues.
If you would like to speak to the School Nurse attached to BHSA, please call 0151 514 0219 or visit the School Nursing (Wirral) website https://www.wchc.nhs.uk/services/school-nursing-wirral/
