We are very aware of how important it is for our students to have good mental health particularly during the current pandemic. In working closely with our students we aim to develop close working relationships so that they feel comfortable in opening up to staff if they are feeling low or down. Our students know that they can approach any member of staff who will help them to deal with any mental health issues that they are experiencing.
Our school counsellor works with our students to help them understand what is causing them to feel low or down and provides them with the skills required to help them better manage times of low mood or depression in some cases.
Our team work with external agencies when required and a number of our staff have completed Mental Health Awareness courses
