Mental Health & Wellbeing
At Strathmore, we aim to promote positive mental health for every part of our community, including learners, staff and wider community and aim to recognise and respond to mental ill health.
Developing the children’s emotional wellbeing permeates our curriculum and underpins our core values as a school. We promote explicit teaching of emotional wellbeing and mental health with reference to UNICEF and the Rights Respecting School agenda and in PSHE, PE and Science curriculum lessons.
As a school we recognise the importance of children’s mental health and wellbeing and provide targeted support for individuals who may require additional support in order to reach their full potential.
At Strathmore, we work in partnership with parents and the whole school community to support and promote a child’s wellbeing.
Our commitment to mental health and wellbeing ensures that our staff team are well qualified and trained to support our children. This includes annual Safeguarding training, Mental Health First Aiders, Team Teach training for all staff. We also have regular access to the Educational Psychologist who provides support for learners and their families. We provide support for our employees via the Employee Assistance Programme and support families by signposting to services and working closely with the Social Care team.
