MENTALLY HEALTHY SCHOOL
The Aspire Academy Trust is committed to supporting positive mental health and the Aspire Mental Health Policy is available below.
The ‘Leading a Mentally Healthy School’ training programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA), in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children & Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).
We recognise that the decision to close a school in the event of an emergency (e.g. snow, flooding, no water or heating) has a significant impact upon you, as parents. The document below outlines the agreed procedure which all schools are asked to follow and offers advice to parents on the key things to consider, both before and after the decision to close has been made.
HEALTH & WELLBEING
Below are downloads and links that relate to physical, mental and emotional wellbeing for your child and your family.
The school nursing service forms part of your child’s school health team. We are an experienced, professional and qualified team who here to help you and your child.
The School Nurse will see your child in a school or health setting.
School Nurses have three main roles:
- To give confidential advice and care to young people and parents or carers
- Support parents/young people to look after your physical and emotional health, and to make sure other people know what you need to be healthy
- To make sure children and young people with health issues receive the right NHS care and specialist services.
The School Nurse is the first person you may wish to speak to for confidential advice and information about your child’s health. Click on the School Nurse leaflet below for more information.
