Mental Health & Wellbeing - FACT Offer

“ Mental health is a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realise their abilities, learn well and work well, and contribute to their community.”
World Health Organisation - 2022

Within our Academy Trust, we aim to promote good mental health and well being for our whole community: children, staff & families.

We aim to develop protective factors by being a community in which all:

  • are respected 
  • have a sense of belonging and feel safe
  • are able to talk openly with trusted adults
  • see good mental health as something to be valued and nurtured

We want all members of our community to:

  • feel confident in themselves
  • be able to express a range of emotions appropriately
  • be able to make and maintain positive relationships with others
  • cope with the challenges of everyday life
  • manage times of stress and deal with change
  • thrive and achieve

We aim to achieve this through:

  • PHSE curriculum, including the Dot Com programme
  • raising awareness (wellbeing assemblies, events)
  • listening to our students 
  • providing support through our mentoring team
  • providing support through SPIL, our school based counselling service
  • working in partnership with parents/carers & families where there are concerns about mental health 
  • signposting sources of external help and advice
  • making referrals and working with external agencies to provide additional support to those who need it
  • recognising the importance of staff mental health and wellbeing. 
  • encouraging & modelling healthy attitudes and habits such as healthy diets and exercise
  • having strong links with the local community
