Mental Health

Promote Positive Mental Health - a school's role:

  • Develop an ethos and environment that supports learning and promotes the health and wellbeing of all
  • Promoting resilience in students
  • Feel safe and supported
  • Develop a sense of belonging, encouraging participation of all within the school community
  • Pupil relationships - trust to talk openly with adults about their problem

Mental Health Support During Periods of Isolation



Mental Health Support Bag 

Mental Health Support Bag, an idea which originated from our Student Senate, looks to support our emotionally vulnerable students if they need to isolate from school. Included in the support bag, is a mental health book which encourages students to plan a self-care programme, whilst at the same time reminding students of key staff and available support both in and out of school.

Student Mental Health & Wellbeing Updates

All students across the Key Stages receive regular emails on mental health support, advice, and activities. This direct support helps to encourage personal development in helping to manage their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
