Although we are very proud that SIAMS (2016) recognised our caring culture and that OFSTED (2017) graded the personal development and welfare as outstanding. We know that wellbeing is something that continually needs development and support, especially in an evolving and challenging world for our whole community.
At St Michael & All Angels, we believe in promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. Prioritising the wellbeing of students and staff ensures that effective teaching and learning can take place, and that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive.
School has run sessions for parents about how to support pupils. The sessions were called 'Keeping Children Safe'. If you were unable to attend these sessions or would like more support or help please do not hesitate to contact Miss Briggs or Mrs Berry.
School has a number of staff with the 'Young People Mental Health First Aid' qualification along with our Learning Mentor whom is also a Mental Health First Aider trainer. The 'Young People Mental Health First Aid' qualification ensures they have skills and knowledge to begin support young people as they develop into young adults and deal with common difficulties they may experience. We also work alongside outside agencies and can refer children or families if you require more support or help. If you need any help numbers please so ask.
Each year we participate in Anti-Bullying Week, it is imperative this work is continued and embedded throughout the year though.
Bullying clearly effects our well-being and can happen to anyone, anywhere. If you or someone you know is being bullied, you are not alone.
People calling you names
Making things up to get you into trouble
Hitting, pinching, biting, pushing and shoving
Stealing from you
Damaging your belongings on purpose
Taking your friends away from you
People threatening you, or being intimidating
Cyber bullying – anything that is online such as Facebook or Email
