When a child arrives at Vinehall they are paired with a guardian who will show them around and take care of them. Our guardians take their responsibilities very seriously and help new children settle in very effectively.

If our younger children need a little quiet advice during play times, they can speak to their Buddy. These are older children who have volunteered to be a support to them, who regularly check in on them during the week and can help them with their day to day worries.  The older pupils are given a Buddy Pack to help them. Younger pupils might also want to talk to one of our Year 8 Prefects.
