Howe Dell School has been classed as 'outstanding' following our Health & Safety Audit undertaken by Herts County Council.
This has been integral to developing our pupils' behaviour and raising attandance during the year. The Action Plan was devised from consultation of all stakeholders and reflects the exciting developments in the following areas:
Well-Being recognises that Howe Dell is a creative and motivating place in which to teach, work and learn. The programme supports the whole staff in the school in creating a healthier workplace. It focuses on the development of healthy organisations not singled-out individuals. It is about improving the culture of the workplace and working practices, based on collective problem-solving.
Howe Dell School is pleased to provide placements for students and recruit from the University of Hertfordshire. Debra Massey has interviewed applicants for Hertfordshire University's B.Ed.(Hons) and PGCE courses for many years.
