The Junction

Welcome to the Junction

At Western we recognise that a pupil's happiness and well-being are the foundation for their success and that it is essential to nurture, not just the academic progress of the child, but to look after the 'whole person'.

We take every opportunity to teach strategies for building social skills, resilience and raising self-esteem. At Western, these are seen as vital steps in preparing our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.

The Junction, found at the heart of the school, offers a safe, confidential and supportive environment to discuss any issues or concerns that may arise for pupils, parents and carers. If you are unsure about who to turn to or where to turn next, the team in 'The Junction' are there to help.

Operating an open door policy, we aim to ensure that concerns are addressed effectively and quickly and that, when necessary, you are signposted in the right direction for the appropriate support.

What can 'The Junction' help you and your family with?

  • Provide a listening ear
  • Support children with friendship issues
  • Help with homework or school work anxieties
  • Build self-esteem
  • Offer Breakfast Club for disadvantaged pupils
  • Help with concerns over divorce/separation
  • Support around illness or bereavement
  • Discuss behaviour at home, at school and offer support 
  • Set boundaries and routines at home
  • Support general anxieties/ worries and suggest strategies to overcome this
  • Help with parenting concerns
Please call in or speak to the office who will point you in the right direction!
