Mental Health

We are committed to supporting the metal health and wellbeing of the children in our academy. To ensure we are doing this we have the following things in place; 

  • A strong shared ethos which includes unconditional positive regard
  • A full time inclusion mentor who works with groups and individuals supporting their social and emotional needs
  • Wellbeing time in classes each week where we teach the children techniques to look after their physical and mental wellbeing
  • Arranged soft starts for identified children who are struggling with some aspect of school
  • Working with external agencies when needed
  • An allocated nurture classroom where groups take place
  • Continuous staff training in techniques to identify and support children i.e. Thrive
