Silver Mental Health in Schools Award Dec 2019

This award has demonstrated the significant support given to children and families and the increasing support we are giving to staff.  Following the final assessment / coaching session at the end of December we were delighted to be awarded the Silver Mental Health in Schools award.  Our coach was particularly  impressed by the level of training we have done at a whole school level, the level and amount of external qualifications staff have achieved (attachment leads, Nurture, THRIVE, therapeutic play, counselling skills etc.), the learning culture in the school (staff and pupils), our support for staff well-being (e.g. phase planning, smart marking, appraisal and leadership opportunities for all), our Treehouse and Nest provision, the extent of staff consultation on key policies (behaviour policy, teaching and learning policy), and just how much mental health and well-being are at the forefront of all we do in school.  

A huge thank you to Mrs Pike for her considerable leadership in this key area.
