Young Minds Matter
We are delighted that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new national programme to help make mental health support for children and young people more available when they need it.
We are one of 73 schools from Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean to work with the NHS in Gloucestershire in introduce Mental Health Support Teams into schools.
We hope that these teams will provide valuable support to our pupils to help them with life’s ups and downs e.g. issues with anxiety, friendships, exam stress and challenging behaviour.
This may involve group work and/or individual sessions and may take place in or out of school. Where appropriate, the Mental Health Support Team will also link up with the specialist mental health services in Gloucestershire. They will also support families and teachers to help children and young people who are experiencing difficulties.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s mental health please speak to the class teacher or senco.
