Emotional and Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health is a state of wellbeing 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, 2014).

 In our school, our Christian vision shapes all we do.

We aim to promote positive emotional and mental health for every member of our staff and all pupils. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils.

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