Wellbeing Award in Schools

Wellbeing Award in School


We are delighted to announce that Catchgate has been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools. 

We believe that feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life. This award looks at how well we promote the emotional wellbeing and mental health across the whole school community, including pupils, parents and staff.


The WAS change team consists of Mrs Shaw (head teacher), Miss Burns (wellbeing and resilience champion, class teacher), Mrs White-Head Lewis (school counsellor), Mrs Bambridge (school business manager and parent) Mrs Duggan (SENCO), Mr McDowall (Governor) and Mrs Stephenson (Local councillor and governor).


We also have a team of Wellbeing Warriors which consist of both parents and children from school.


With this award, we:


  • Show our commitment to promoting mental health as part of school life
  • Improve the emotional wellbeing of staff and pupils
  • Ensure mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
  • Offer provision and interventions that matches the needs of its pupils and staff
  • Engage the whole-school community in the importance of mental health awareness
  • Capture the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues



We look forward to continue working with you on our journey to ensuring the wellbeing of all is at the forefront of everything we do at Catchgate Primary School!
