Heads Together – supporting pupils’ mental health and wellbeing at ECS
We are delighted to be supporting an exciting and important new initiative to promote the mental health of children in schools. The Duchess of Cambridge has launched ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ this week with the aim to provide schools with practical resources, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils’ mental health. As a School, we know that there is strong evidence that school programmes that promote social and emotional skills can improve mental health and academic achievement. Our updated PSHE programme of study and Health & Wellbeing modules for Upper Years pupils have been important in helping our pupils to thrive and we are looking forward to further enhancing this programme through the ‘Mentally Healthy School’s initiative.
