Congratulations to Miss Wignall and Mrs Byard who were both successful in becoming qualified Mental Health First Aiders earlier this month at a course in Liverpool. They join an ever-expanding team of staff who have undergone intensive training in how to identify signs and symptoms, as well as support students with their emotional health and wellbeing.
The Mental Health First Aiders team consists of:
Mr Ramsdale (Senior Assistant Headteacher)
Mrs Walker (Pastoral Support Worker & Haven Manager)
Mrs Ibrahim (Pupil Premium Champion)
Mrs Cahill (Community Studies Coordinator)
Mrs Davda (Teaching Assistant)
All our staff have taken part in regular training in how to support students with their emotional health and wellbeing and our pastoral team have considerable experience and expertise in helping girls when they need it. In fact, PGHS is currently seeking external recognition of all the work done in this area and we hope to secure the Leeds Becket University School Mental Health Award later this year.
If you would like any further information about our work in this area, or if you have any concerns about your daughter’s emotional health and wellbeing, then please get in touch with your daughter’s Raising Achievement Coordinator.
