Welfare team

the welfare team

The Welfare Team are here for the wellbeing of all our students, regardless of age, ability, religion, culture, gender, ethnic origin or class.  By providing a duty of care we encourage all our students to come and talk to the team if they are homesick, feel isolated, sad, depressed or in need of a positive conversation.

At the beginning of each year, the Welfare Team will talk with the students about living in Cambridge and the UK, a new country and culture for many of our students.  They advise on how best to practice tolerance, understanding and positive interaction between students and the local people and to have regard for each other's privacy and possessions.

We pride ourselves in supporting students to develop their intellectual and creative talents and we work closely with all staff to aid a student who may be failing for whatever reason.

The team provides a professional counselling service where students can come and discuss their feelings on any issues (past or present) in a safe and confidential space.

When necessary, they provide PSHE sessions on sex, drugs, alcohol, tolerance, spirituality and British values.

At CSVPA we also provide a safe room for spiritual practice should any student feel the need to practice their religion or simply need space and time to spend time with themselves.
