Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Claydon High School we aim to promote good mental health and wellbeing for our whole community including students, staff, parents and carers.
We aim to develop protective factors by being a community in which all:
- Are respected
- Have a sense of belonging and feel safe
- Are able to talk openly with trusted adults
- See good mental health as something to be valued and nurtured
We want all members of our community to:
- Feel confident in themselves
- Be able to express a range of emotions appropriately
- Be able to make and maintain positive relationships with others
- Cope with the challenges of everyday life
- Manage times of stress and deal with change
- Thrive and achieve
We aim to achieve this through:
- Our PHSE curricuclum
- Raising awareness (wellbeing assemblies, tips for good mental health)
- Listening to our students
- Gaining insights via student voice
- Working in partnership with parents/carers where there are concerns about mental health
- Signposting sources of external help and advice
- Making referrals and working with external agencies to provide additional support to those who need it
- Recognising the importance of staff mental health and wellbeing.
- Modelling healthy attitudes and habits
