At Brackenhill, we recognise the importance of enabling pupils to be resilient and supporting good mental health and wellbeing. We support and promote positive mental health and wellbeing in the following ways:

  • Prevention: creating a safe and calm environment where mental health problems are less likely, improving the mental health and wellbeing of the whole school population, and equipping pupils to be resilient so that they can
  • manage the normal stress of life effectively. This will include teaching pupils about mental wellbeing through the curriculum and reinforcing this teaching through school activities and ethos.
  • Identification: recognising emerging issues as early and accurately as possible.
  • Early support: helping pupils to access evidence based early support and interventions.
  • Access to specialist support: working effectively with external agencies to provide swift access or referrals to specialist support and treatment.
