Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.’ (World Health Organization)

In our school, our mission statement shapes all we do: “Learning from the example of Jesus, our school will be a place where everyone feels loved, valued and encouraged to do and be the best they can.’

Whilst encouraging, ‘everyone to do and be the best they can’ we focus on three main qualities we hope our community embodies – kindness, respect and resilience. In addition, we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our school family.

We pursue this aim using both universal, whole school approaches (ROAR, Come and See, Jigsaw and Picture News) and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils (HLTA support, counselling through outside agencies, ‘Think Yourself Great’ groups and mentoring).

As well as promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, we aim to recognise and respond to need as it arises. By developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective mental health and wellbeing policies and procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for pupils affected both directly, and indirectly by mental health and wellbeing issues.
