Highlighting to students the importance of compassion, empathy and respect is central to Holyrood Academy.

Year group assemblies are held weekly, and, alongside lessons and the PDP curriculum, allow for opportunities to discuss and understand the social, political and cultural differences within our school and wider community.

All students should treat others the way they wish to be treated themselves and students are encouraged to report any incidents of bullying via email to This will allow a member of staff to deal with the incident as soon as possible. You can also read our bullying policy here.

Students need to be kind to themselves too! Each year we hold the ‘Mindfest’ event where students can opt for and participate in activities that promote a sense of self-care and worth. ‘Mindfest’ is a great opportunity to recognise the importance of looking after ourselves as well as others. We also have a designated mental health and wellbeing lead at the school where students can be referred to by their year leader.
