Mental Health & Well-Being

As a school we place an emphasis on the value of mental health and wellbeing.

Our PSHE curriculum includes units on understanding the various factors that can affect our wellbeing – physical, mental or both – such as healthy and respectful relationships, identity, body image and social media, plus practical advice on coping strategies.

We also promote ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ and model the concept of getting ‘mindfit’ by highlighting the various active and creative ways that staff maintain their mental health and wellbeing. A recent survey gave students the opportunity to share their perspectives and to indicate if they would benefit from a conversation with their tutor, head of year or one of our pastoral support coordinators.

Accessing support for you or your child

There are various organisations offering support for parents on how to support a child with mental health needs, or for parents who have mental health needs themselves.
