Leaders and staff give pupils’ emotional wellbeing and mental health the utmost priority.
Leaders recognise that what works well for one pupil may not prove successful for another.
Together with staff and external agencies, leaders devise and implement bespoke programmes of support for each pupil. These typically include well-targeted additional therapy. As a result, pupils are increasingly able to manage their emotions and behaviour as well as ask for help when they need it

Pupils feel confident to raise issues that may cause them anxiety and know that adults, including on-site therapists, will respond and support them.

There has been a noticeable difference in relationships within the school team. The staff seem much more positive with a can-do persona.

The work Asha has completed thus far has been a valuable and significant milestone in the positive way the staff work together and with the leadership within the school.

[student] enjoyed working with you earlier on this week. He went home and reported to his mother that you understood him and he was able to relate to you. He said it was like you were in his head and living in a home where the parents had separated. Mum is pleased that he is talking to someone.

I wish I had found Innovating Minds sooner.

I have planned more staff well-being activities into the yearly calendar. This has included tea and cake afternoons for new staff (if you knew me you would know that this is quite a big thing). I am less critical of those that require more help.
