Wellbeing

At our school we believe that a child who feels happy and looked after will achieve and be successful within their education. Due to this understanding we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for both students and staff. We are constantly evolving and adapting our support by listening to the needs of all our stakeholders.

In the New Year, students and parents will be invited to complete a questionnaire on how we can support the wellbeing of our students. We would be grateful for your time to complete this which will be sent via email. It is really important that we receive constructive feedback so we can work with parents/carers to support the needs of your child.

In the meantime, if you feel that wellbeing support is needed, we can offer:
• One to one support through your mentor and Achievement Director
• Drop in access to the Student Support Team in DO6 at break and lunch
• Drop in to the School Nurse Tuesday lunch times in the Teaching & Learning Room
• Open Door Policy to Mental Health First Aiders – Ms Goodfellow, Mrs Byford, Mrs Sexton and Ms Marable
• One to one support through Sixth Form Wellbeing Champions
• Use of the Wellbeing Space at break and lunch
• Use of the Quiet Quad at break and lunch
• Mindfulness Club Tuesday after school in the Wellbeing Space
• Wellbeing Learning Sessions once per week delivered in mentor time – topics include substance misuse, healthy relationships and positive mental health
• Enrichment opportunities such as Duke of Edinburgh, Social Action, Sports, Chess and Journalism – see Ms Price for details.
