Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy

Wellbeing Award

Wood End Park Academy has been working towards achieving the Wellbeing award for the past two years. The whole school community has been involved in promoting and raising awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing.

There are four key principles driving the ideas and recommendations behind the award:

•Emotional wellbeing and mental health are a continuum.

•Schools already experience and manage emotional issues on a daily basis; the objective is to minimise the impact of such issues and maximise the effectiveness of any responses.

•Emotional wellbeing covers a range of dimensions, such as resilience, character building, relationships and self-esteem, etc. Understanding both developmental and mental health awareness is critical.

•Creating a positive school culture requires a whole-school approach that is led from the top while involving all in the school community.

Wood End Park was verified and awarded the Wellbeing award in July 2021. We continue our wellbeing work and welcome your support in this area.
