Health and Wellbeing

At Whalley Range 11–18 High school we are committed to supporting and developing the wellbeing of our students. Our students are provided with a wide range of activities to support their physical and emotional health. The IMatter curriculum places emphasis on each student as an individual.

Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding children and promoting children’s welfare and expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a constant vigilant and safe environment.

School Closures

If the school is closed for any emergency reason, we will send a text message and an email message to all the parent/carer details that we hold on our student records. It is therefore very important that you keep us up to date with any changes to your mobile phone number or email address. Information will also be available on the school’s website and an answerphone message will be left on the main telephone number (0161 861 9727). In addition, for short notice closures due to severe weather, local radio stations will be informed.

Requesting Information

If you would like a paper copy of any information published on this website please contact the school.

Parent View

An online questionnaire for you to give your view about this school at any time of the year. At the time of an Ofsted inspection, parents are also invited to give inspectors their views using Parent View.
