We recognise and understand that we all cope in different ways. 

The Academy Wellbeing Centres offer support for our students in times of need.  Dealing on your own with issues such as anxiety, mental health, wellbeing, self-regulation, or bereavement can be a barrier to success.  Our Wellbeing Centres aim to ensure you are not alone. 

The Academy Wellbeing Centres are a safety net for students who are not currently able to engage with lessons fully, and offers short and long-term interventions that are flexible for all. 

There is a rolling programme of external agency support available to all, including counsellors, the school nurse and small group support. 

A nurture programme is available if students are identified as requiring a small group provision with a bespoke timetable, delivered by  Trauma Perspective Trained staff. 

The Academy Wellbeing Centres have resourced learning zones where students can access a curriculum of pre-recorded lessons, recorded by subject specific teaching staff, if they are unable to access their lessons for small periods of time.  

Our student-centred support is designed to achieve the best possible outcomes and enable all to fulfil their potential. 

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s mental health please submit your information via the  contact us page, making sure to select the 'Wellbeing' option.
