  • encouraging pupils to be more reflective.
  • increasing pupils levels of self-awareness.
  • consolidating their independence and sense of responsibility.
  • offering students opportunities to increase their understanding of health issues that affect them (mental health, eating disorders etc..)
  • Offering guidance and support in making decisions about their future career paths.
