Supporting Wellbeing

The school is committed to helping pupils achieve their full potential academically, spiritually and socially. This is not possible without good physical and mental well-being.

Please find some advice from Mind about helping someone else seek help here.


Wellbeing Award for Schools
Our school is now working towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Surveys have been distributed to our staff, pupils and their parents. We're hoping to obtain a picture of our current provision so that we can plan to improve how we support the emotional wellbeing of all of the members of our school community. More information available here.

World Mental Health Day
Our school celebrated World Mental Health Day on Thursday 10th October by saying #HelloYellow. All our students took part in activities during form time which allowed students to reflect on caring for their mental and physical wellbeing. We also held a #HelloYellow bake sale over lunchtime.”

What has been achieved so far?

2) Staff have access to a psychotherapist - bookings must be made through Miss Hornsey.
3) The school's Marking and Assessment Policy has been updated through the input of a dedicated Working Party of our colleagues.
4) A team of Wellbeing Coaches have been appointed and trained to provide a listening ear for staff outside of the school's line management structure.
5) Staff have been provided with training relating to stress management and other mental health issues.
6) We are constantly seeking ways to recognise and praise the hard work of our staff.
7) We have refurbished the Staff Room and provide opportunities for staff to socialise and team build, both inside and out of school hours.

What are we working on next?
1) We are looking to broaden the scope of our staff clubs and events to involve as many of our colleagues as possible.
2) We are looking into the possibility of offer volunteering opportunities for staff.


We're also committed to supporting our parents and guardians, whether this relates to their own wellbeing or that of their child or ward.
