Whole School Approach

Promoting positive wellbeing in your students, staff and whole school community.

This school-wide, holistic approach supports the wellbeing of your students and staff by creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable talking about mental health.

The programme is delivered on a yearly basis, with each year group receiving a tailored selection of 1-hour workshops targeted to their specific needs.
