We believe that all young people deserve the best start in life and know that our students’ mental health and wellbeing are vital to their ability to thrive and be the best.
â€‹With the continued disruption to everyday life due to Covid 19, we know that this could have a big impact on your mental health.
Just because you aren't in school as much, please don't feel like you need to deal with this on your own. If you want some help, or even just someone to talk to about how you are feeling, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to give you the support you need, or point you to other support services that you can access.
Below are some resources that you can use on your own, although we would really appreciate it if you could let us know you have used them, so we can see how useful students are finding them.
I know that the school is looking out for me and I am grateful that they have never given up on me. (A Student - September 2018)
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)
The academy believes strongly that students’ mental health should be recognised and supported as much as physical health. We are proud that we have two fully trained Mental Health First Aiders at the academy, both of whom have trained with MHFA England, the only provider of licensed Mental Health First Aid training in England. This means that we are well equipped to provide bespoke early intervention and support for our students in a timely manner. Any member of staff can refer a student for an initial MHFA assessment. Should you have any concerns regarding your child’s mental health please contact your child’s Head of Year who can make a referral on your behalf.
