We explicitly address online safety as part of our balanced and varied curriculum. Guidance is delivered as relevant in lessons as well as through dedicated PSHE lessons. Although internet access in the school is strictly monitored to ensure that all students are safe, students are able to access a less filtered internet outside of school; below are some links which include guidance for parents/carers and what to do if you have any concerns.

 Wellbeing and mental health support

Wellbeing and mental health support are a top priority at William Lovell C of E Academy.  In keeping with our Christian ethos, we are committed to supporting our students in every aspect of their journey through school.  We have a dedicated Wellbeing Team, comprising our Wellbeing Officer and two Wellbeing Mentors.  These members of staff are trained and experienced in supporting students to express their worries, understand their feelings and work through any difficulties in school, and are able to identify issues that may require additional support in school and/or from outside agencies.  Our SENDCo is a qualified Mental Health First Aider and is undertaking the Senior Mental Health Leadership Advanced Award.


  • Our SENDCO: Joanna Rose –
  • Our Governor with responsibility for SEND: Revd Judith Simons.
  •  Our Student Wellbeing Officer: Mrs Kim Dunn.


We are committed to meeting the needs of all students. There is a shared expectation that all students, regardless of their specific needs, should be offered inclusive and personalised teaching to enable them to make the best possible progress and to feel that they are a valued member of the school community.

The range of support deployed will be tailored to individual need following thorough assessment by staff or external agencies. It is designed to promote students working towards becoming independent and resilient learners and should not be seen in isolation.
