Wellbeing Award for Schools

Wellbeing Award for Schools

 

As a whole school, we were accredited with the prestigious Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS) 3 years ago, and it is coming to that time where we will be collecting evidence to  hopefully be re-accredited again, to showcase our dedication and commitment to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing across the whole school community. 

 

To achieve this vision, NCB advocates the use of a ‘whole-school approach’ where all aspects of the school experience are harnessed to promote the emotional wellbeing and mental health of pupils and staff. It is an approach where emotional wellbeing and mental health is everybody’s business, which is why, as a school, we ensure that mental health is at the heart of everything we do, for children, staff, parents and the wider community.

 

 

About the Award

There are eight objectives to achieve within the Well-being Award Framework, containing several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) set out within each. The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional well-being and mental health of both staff and pupils. The award will enable us to develop these practices where necessary and help us to ensure that well-being is embedded in the long-term culture of our school. It will help us to create an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.

With this award, we will demonstrate our commitment to:

  • Promoting mental health as part of every day school life
  • Improving the emotional well-being of our staff and pupils
  • Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
  • Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of our pupils and staff
  • Promoting the importance of mental health awareness
  • Capturing the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues
