Notton House Academy passes the Mental Health and Wellbeing Badge
We are pleased to announce that Notton House has PASSED the Mental Health and Wellbeing Badge.
This was a very strong submission and the school has clearly worked hard to develop a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing. They have strong leadership and policies and practice that support mental wellbeing. The school has a good understanding of the mental health needs of both pupil and staff.
The staff are trained to deliver a PSHE curriculum that supports good health. They have also received training to ensure that they have a range of appropriate skills to support pupils effectively. They work in partnership with their Primary Mental Health Specialist and they have a very broad variety of support services available to pupils, including support for those who are unable to attend school.
The school has developed strong pupil participation, which helps to identify key issues in the school. These have included include sleep and bullying and they have put focused work in place to support change. They have also introduced a range of positive activities to improve the environment and support mental wellbeing including additions to the gym, opportunities for gardening and improved play facilities.
Notton House understands the importance of staff mental health and wellbeing and how this can impact on the wellbeing of the whole school community. They also engage well with parents and have a family support worker to support this.
We would like to congratulate Notton House on this achievement.
