Excellence in School Mental Health Award for Schools - Success!
We are delighted to announce that, under the excellent stewardship of Mrs Forte, our school mental health lead and ambassador, we have been awarded the Excellence in School Mental Health Award.
I want to congratulate all staff for their contributions to supporting mental health across the school and in particular Mrs Forte for her outstanding contributions and leadership in this key area of school life.
The Department for Education recognises the direct link between positive mental health in schools and successful educational outcomes; the Mental Health Award for Schools builds on this link and provides a framework for educational institutions to evidence policies and initiatives that work towards improving emotional health and wellbeing for both staff and pupils.
Mental health is an integrated element in all we do across the school through our policies, protocols, curriculum and interactions - but if you would like to see an overview and insight into how we support pupils' mental health and wellbeing, visit our 'Emotional Wellbeing' page.
