We were delighted to be awarded the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools ‘School Mental Health Award’ – Bronze? Status.
Since September 2019, a range of staff across school have been working hard to develop our provision for both students and staff. This has included training a team of Mental Health First Aiders, creating tracking systems, developing links with external agencies and ensuring that staff wellbeing is always a top priority. Staff reported high levels of wellbeing and satisfaction in the most recent staff survey, despite the circumstances we find ourselves in currently.
Quote from the assessing team:
“We are delighted for the school and hope that we will be able to stay in touch with you and celebrate the great work you are doing for your pupils and staff. Congratulations again on your successful completion of the School Mental Health Award.“
Professor Damien Page, Dean Johnstone, Rachel Bostwick and the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools Team
Our aim is to develop our provision even further and we intend to secure Silver Status in the future.
