Wellbeing & Mental Health

Imagine a place where school is ‘ready’ for children

Positive mental health cannot be summed up in a few catch phrases, nor can it be achieved with short term interventions. There are many things that we consciously do to promote wellbeing and positive mental health.
Central to our education philosophy is:
  • pupil empowerment and autonomy – giving children freedom, lack of pressure, space and choice
  • personal development of the 7 QI skills
  • curiosity, playfulness and sociability – learning ‘what’ and ‘how’
  • the circle of courage
This is lived out and reflected in:

Mental Health Leadership and Support

In addition to our coordinated and evidence-informed approach to mental health in school, the Department for Education has recommended that all schools and colleges in England appoint a senior mental health lead by 2025.

Our Senior Mental Health Lead is responsible for a more strategic implementation and planning role.

With a strong focus on health, wellbeing and sport, our lead practitioner is responsible for strategy, intent and implementation.

NHS Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) are also working within schools to provide an additional source of support to families and schools.
