Mental Health

At Putteridge, we believe that good mental health is instrumental to maintaining healthy relationships, positive goals and a high expectation for learning. Mental health is a wide term and includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being - it can impact how we assess situations, think, feel and act.. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. We actively support all pupils in promoting good mental health across our school day. When a student is struggling to maintain good mental health, we have a number of ways to support them in school.

 

Who can I contact in school if I am worried about my child’s mental health and wellbeing?

 


 

  • Pastoral leaders
  • Safeguarding officers
  • School Counsellor
  • Form Tutor

 

Where can I find out more information about mental health and wellbeing and get support for my young person?

 

 

 

Wellbeing Champions 

Our Wellbeing Champions are currently being established in school. These are students who have worked alongside the School Counsellor in how to spot students displaying signs of anxiety, worries, loneliness or struggling in school. They will support the students they see by giving them a friendly face to talk to and they seek support from the School Counsellor if they need help to support the students. If you think your child would like to sign up then please ask them to see Mrs Jackson in school.
