The Boswells School strives to ensure that all students are supported to feel safe and secure both on their way to and from school as well as during their curriculum lessons and recreational time. The Pastoral Team works with a number of external agencies to ensure specialist support services are available to young people and their parents / guardians. The team is very experienced and a number of staff work solely to ensure the wellbeing of the young people in The Boswells School. In addition to the information available on the links below, the school has a Twitter Page which regularly shares up to date advice on a range of welfare issues. Please follow us on @BoswellsPD
