Guidance is a whole school responsibility and all staff, teaching and non-teaching have an important role to play.
A House system is in operation. There are three Houses: Jedburgh, Kelso and Selkirk and all staff and pupils belong to one of the Houses. In general terms the House Leader and House staff follow the progress of each pupil in their House group from first year until the time he /she leaves school. We are concerned with each pupil’s personal, social and vocational welfare and are able to offer support and guidance throughout their school career. We also have close links with outside agencies: Social Work Department, Psychological Services, Allied Health Professionals and Skills Development Scotland. We are also keen to encourage close contacts between home and school and to involve parents in all aspects of their son / daughter school career.
