Leading a Mentally Healthy School (Primary and Secondary)

Developing a mentally healthy school is fast becoming a high priority objective for the DfE and OFSTED.  This is captured in the new Safeguarding Policy drafted by Essex County Council in April 2018:

‘11.  Promoting positive mental health and resilience in school

Positive mental health is the concern of the whole community and we recognise that schools play a key part in this. Our school wants to develop the emotional wellbeing and resilience of all pupils and staff, as well as provide specific support for those with additional needs…’

Supported by a Mentally Healthy School, training modules have been supported by Health Education England (HEE) and created by the School Development Agency (SDSA) in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations.
