Mental Health and Wellbeing
At our school, we adopt a Whole-School Approach to promoting positive mental health and well-being for our entire community; pupils, staff, parents and carers, and recognise how important mental health and emotional well-being is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. Our vision is for children to be able to flourish and be happy in the modern world, feel valued, and develop a strong moral and compassionate code that enables positive and fulfilling relationships around them.
Poor mental health undermines educational attainment. Surveys suggest that disproportionately large numbers of pupils with conduct and emotional disorders fall behind in their overall educational attainment, missing school and/or being excluded. One in ten children and young people aged 5 to 16 have a clinically diagnosed mental health disorder and around one in seven has less severe problems.
