All schools should offer a learning environment that promotes and enhances positive mental health and emotional wellbeing with a consistent approach. National guidance supports the view that:
"A healthy school ensures that when pupils are unhappy, anxious, disturbed or depressed there are open channels for them to seek or be offered support, without stigma and with appropriate confidentiality." "A healthy school actively seeks to promote positive emotional health and wellbeing and helps pupils understand their feelings, and build their confidence and emotional resilience and therefore their capacity to learn."
At Ribston Hall, we are committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing with all students, their families and members of staff and governors through a whole school coherent strategy. Mental Health and psychological wellbeing are fundamental to broader health and wellbeing. Our emotional wellbeing is just as important as our physical health.
