Mental Health and Wellbeing
We are working towards achieving a national Wellbeing Award for our school. This award will further underpin our school value linked to wellbeing, the aim is “ For the health, wellbeing and safety of staff and pupils to be paramount.”
This award has been developed with the National Children’s Bureau and focuses on the importance of developing a healthy emotional well- being and mental health for both pupils and staff. Please see the attached leaflet for more information about the award.
Our Wellbeing Champions
Wellbeing Champions have been appointed to take an active role in planning and delivering school Wellbeing events.
Mental Health and Well-being have become an increasing priortiy and central focus within the school and the wider community. We have a number of different processes to help students who feel that they may need to talk to someone about their mental health or get the support for someone they are concerned about.
- Parent concerns – if you have a concern about your child, another child or even yourself, you can speak to your child’s class teacher, Mrs Gray, Mrs Alcock, or email email@example.com for further support.
- Worry Boxes – pupils can post a note with concerns about another pupil or themselves. These are checked daily and any information inside is followed up by the class teacher.
- Pupil drop in sessions are available with the school ELSA, Mrs Alcock.
- Pupils can also approach any member of staff that they feel confident with, with any concerns.
As a school, we take all aspects of a young person’s well-being seriously but as well as contacting us to let us know your concerns we strongly recommend that you contact your GP to discuss any concerns that you may have about your young person.
We place great emphasis on the welfare of our school community and provide support, information and guidance to help everyone at our school feel happy. We also celebrate the diverse and inclusive nature of our school community.
