Wellbeing and Mental Health

This section looks at how to keep children and young people emotionally well and mentally healthy.

Promoting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health in children and young people enables them to better understand and manage their feelings. The emotional health and wellbeing of pupils underpins the entire school experience. Every child has emotional needs and the school has a responsibility to provide a nurturing and supportive environment in which learners can develop confidence and emotional resilience in order to achieve their full potential and therefore enhance their capacity to learn. In addition there will be specific vulnerable groups of children and young people who will require additional support.

Schools have a statutory responsibility in relation to promoting pupil wellbeing and safeguarding of children and young people. You will find Evidence Reports, Guidance, Sources of Support on both national and local level as well as Teaching and Learning resources including from the PSHE Association. 

For further information, please contact Lee Souter, Lee.souter@southwark.gov.uk
