Our vision is to provide an ethos and environment in which the overall health of our students is enhanced by feelings of positive wellbeing and mental health. We believe this will enable them to develop the resilience to face challenges and achieve their aspirations in life.
We promote the importance of emotional wellbeing and mental health across the whole academy community including students, parents and staff.
- Commit to promoting and protecting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health in all stakeholders
- Ensure all stakeholders are aware of our commitment and the support mechanisms in place to support and drive the strategy
- Strive to maintain a positive culture and ethos in which all stakeholders assume responsibility for emotional wellbeing and mental health
- Enable our staff to assume a healthy work-life balance
- Ensure staff are well informed, through effective staff development, about how to practice in a way which supports positive emotional wellbeing and mental health
- Maintain effective systems for recognising, referring and supporting the individual wellbeing and mental health needs of our students
- Operate clear lines of communication, actively seeking and responding to the views of all stakeholders with regards to emotional wellbeing and mental health
- Provide access for students, parents and staff to external agencies and specialist services available to support emotional wellbeing and mental health
