Mental Health and Well Being
At St Peter's we have a unique approach to supporting children with their Mental Health and Well Being... we call it developing a Resurrection Mindset! We aim to encourage all children to be resilient, confident, kind and conscientious individuals who celebrate their differences and can cheer each other on through their school journey.
Our school Mental Health and Well Being Team is:
Senior Mental Health Lead: Mrs L Stubbs
Pastoral Manager: Mrs F Dawson
Safeguarding Team: Mr D Wood (Designated Safeguarding Lead) , Mrs F Dawson (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead), Mr A Whelan (Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead) and Mrs M Sutton (Safeguarding Governor)
See our whole school Mental Health and Well Being vision below:
Developing resilience through our Resurrection Mindset is a key protective factor for all children that can help them manage life's ups and downs... Can you switch your mindset to a Resurrection Mindset?
We acknowledge that some children may need some further support in managing their own well being or mental health, as every child's own circumstances are unique to them. All our staff have been trained in supporting children with their mental health and well being, we also have a skilled pastoral team and senior mental health lead in school.
Here are the steps we would take to identify a child needing additional support:
