We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded ‘Silver Status’ in the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools in recognition of the effective mental health and wellbeing strategies, structures and practices in place for the whole school community. The award acknowledged the pride staff feel in the well being provision they have in school in which children are at the centre of everything they do. The Department of Education recognises the direct link between positive mental health in schools and successful educational outcomes; the Mental Health Award for Schools builds on this link and provides a framework to evidence policies and initiatives that work towards improving emotional health and wellbeing for both staff and pupils. Established by Leeds Beckett University and social enterprise Minds Ahead, the mental health quality kite mark recognises schools that ensure the wellbeing of pupils and staff.
