Mental Health and Well-being
Within Wath C of E high importance is placed on pupils and adults physical, social, emotional and mental health. We believe that resilience and strength in these areas directly impacts on academic progress and attainment and research has shown this. We hope that by helping children express their emotions and seek help when things are tough they are able to take these skills into their adult lives.
Adult and pupil well-being is integrated into all aspects of school life and we are proud to have skilled and committed teams to support this within every classroom and throughout school. Provision within school supports the mental health and wellbeing of everyone and is the entitlement of every child.
Mental Health and Well-being within school is led by the Headteacher, Mr Beevor and the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Sandberg. Mrs Winstanley is the Pupil Well-being manager within school and provides Learning Mentor support within this role. Mrs Whelan is the Parent and Family Support Advisor within school. Cat Seymour is the schools MIND counsellor. This team works together to support the mental health challenges of the school community and external support such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service(CAMHs), Early Help, Rotherham Rise, The Junction Project, NSPCC, Barnados are sought when needed.
