If we wish for children in today’s society to reach their full potential we must offer a holistic curriculum that meets and develops their needs. Teaching children about keeping mentally healthy is just as important as teaching them the fundamentals of reading, writing and maths.
The school worked in partnership with Leeds Beckett University towards the Mental Health and Well Being Award. As part of the work we looked at improving the provision for students across school. The policy below outlines how we will embed Mental Health and Well Being throughout the curriculum as well as the additional support we will offer for any children who may need it. If you have any concerns regarding your child's emotional and social development please contact school.
