Mental Health Support
The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines mental health as a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully, and can contribute to his or her community. (World Health Organisation; WHO 2014).
Stockland Green School is dedicated to promoting positive mental health for all our students. We continuously strive to identify early indicators of poor mental health and respond promptly. We implement practical, relevant, and effective mental health procedures to ensure a safe environment for our students ensuring the best possible educational outcomes for every student.
Our priority is to fulfil our statutory obligation to promote the welfare of children. We are committed to preventing any potential harm to the mental and physical development of our children, as outlined in the Keeping Children Safe in Education guidelines.
Do you want to talk about your child’s mental health?
Feel free to email me or call to book an appointment. I am happy to meet before school from 8.00am – 8.30am and Tuesday – Friday up to 4.30pm.
