At the Heathland School we are committed to promoting positive mental health for every member of our staff and student body. In addition to promoting positive mental health, we aim to recognise and respond to mental ill health. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that make us vulnerable, and at times anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. Therefore, we expect all staff, teaching and non-teaching (including temporary and supply staff), governors and volunteers to share this commitment.
Each week we share a Wellbeing Moment with the students and ask them to reflect on their wellbeing. We use the five ways of Wellbeing (New Ecomomics Foundation) as a focal point for many discussions.
All members of our community have access to resources and support via the Wellbeing Hub. You will also find on this page other links to resources.
If you need support in accessing the Wellbeing Hub or support with your child’s Wellbeing, please contact their Head of Year or Mrs Benedict, our Wellbeing Lead.
