“Mental health is a state of wellbeing in which every individual realises their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to their community.” (World Health Organisation).
At Headlands School we recognise that positive wellbeing and good mental health is vital for our students’ happiness and achievement.
We aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our staff and student community. There is an explicit focus on this within our PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) and in our everyday ethos.
The mental health and wellbeing of all during the COVID-19 crisis has been a key priority – as has the strategy for supporting students as school life returns on site. Much has been written about children’s experience of ‘loss’ during this period; loss of routine and structure, loss of freedom, loss of opportunity and social life and we are committed to providing the best possible support for the ‘recovery’ period that must follow.
We encourage students and parents with any concerns to get in touch with us.
