Mental Health and Well-Being

Headstart

We are delighted to be part of Headstart. This is a pupil mental health champion initiative which has been really successful in Middlesbrough with over 800 primary, secondary and college pupils being trained. As well as working in our own school Headstart brings the champions from others together to share good practice and undertake workshops. The HeadStarters are an army of children who are trained through an education programme. The intention is to build confidence and increase their knowledge and skills to be able to recognise how to maintain good mental health and emotional wellbeing . Once the initial cohort of pupils has been trained we will be provided with the resources to continue the good work. Training begins in April 22.
