Promoting positive well-being and mental health for the whole school community

At Leys Primary School, we are excited to be working towards the Wellbeing Award for Schools, administered by Award Place, in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau.

We have signed up to this award to further develop our work to promote positive wellbeing and mental health for the whole school community and gain accreditation for the work we have already done. It also ties in with our school motto of Resilience to Achieve – Aspiration to Succeed, as we firmly believe that both a healthy mind and body are prerequisite to achieving the best versions of ourselves.

 

About the award

There are eight objectives to achieve within the Wellbeing Award Framework, containing several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) set out within each. The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils. Many of these are already in place. The award will enable us to develop these practices where necessary and help us to ensure that wellbeing is rooted in the long-term culture of our school. It will help us to create an ethos where, like safeguarding, mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.

With this award, we will demonstrate our commitment to:

 

  • Promoting mental health as part of every day school life
  • Improving the emotional wellbeing of our staff and pupils
  • Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
  • Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of our pupils and staff
  • Promoting the importance of mental health awareness
  • Capturing the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues
