£0 + VAT

Ensure Pupil Mental Health and Wellbeing is in the ‘DNA’ of your setting

All schools are being encouraged to have a Senior Mental Health Lead, whether you are a beginner or are wanting to ensure you have a robust whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing in your school or college then our programme is for you.

What does the programme cover?

Unlike other courses, this programme covers ALL of the 8 principles outlined in the PHE’s Promoting Children and Young People’s Emotional Health and Wellbeing. It will enable Senior Mental Health Leads to create their own whole school Mental Health and Wellbeing Development Plan covering:

Leadership and management
Identifying need and monitoring impact of interventions
Targeted support and appropriate referrals
Staff development
Creating an ethos and environment
Enabling the student voice
Working with parents, families and carers
Curriculum, teaching and learning

This course considers behaviour, child safety and mental health. It provides templates, plans and reviewing systems, as well as ideas to create strong foundations for mental health and wellbeing, which can be implemented into your setting to support the improvement of behaviour, attendance, attainment and social and emotional outcomes.

We encourage ‘Wellbeing Action Planning’ to raise students’ voice, increase awareness of their needs and the actions that they can take to positively impact their own wellbeing.
We educate Leads to spot signs and symptoms of mental ill-health, those groups that may be more at risk, and what interventions, signposting, and resources they can put in place as part of a student’s Mental Health Action Plan, as well as procedures for effective referrals.

Through evaluation, training, and coaching support, this package identifies the whole school priorities and develops strategic and operational approaches to address those needs. It establishes how to build on existing provision, implement new systems and measure their impact to successfully meet the core outcomes in the Mental Health Green Paper (2017).
