About the award

The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional well-being and mental health of both staff and pupils.  The focus of the award is on changing the long-term culture of a school and embedding an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.

 

With this award, the school can demonstrate its commitment to-

  • Promoting mental health as part of everyday school life
  • Improving the emotional well-being of their staff and pupils
  • Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
  • Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of its pupils and staff
  • Raising awareness of the importance of mental health awareness
  • Capturing the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues

Part of Wellbeing is making sure you take time for yourself and expressing who you are! The staff at Marlbrook Primary have been active in showing the children at school what this might look like. Mrs Hudson has put this short video together:

Thank you so much taking the time to respond to our parent questionnaires, we really appreciate the feedback that you have given us.  We have collated all of the numbers from your responses and we will now take time as a wellbeing team to evaluate your feedback.  We intend to arrange an opportunity in the Autumn Tern, dependant on COVID restrictions, for you to come in and meet our student support team and hear more about what we can do for you and your children in terms of promoting positive wellbeing within our school. 

As part of the Wellbeing award going forward, we have developed a strategy and your responses have given us lots of ideas for things to consider when looking at Wellbeing in our school community.

We have attached a summary of the wellbeing strategy that we have developed.
