Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental Health Award for Schools
Danetree Primary School has just been awarded the prestigious ‘School Mental Health Award – Silver Status’ by the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools. This whole-school award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils.
The award has a focus on changing the long-term culture of a school, and embedding an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.
To successfully achieve this award, the children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community of Danetree Primary School were able to demonstrate how we:
Commit to promoting mental health as part of school life
Improve the emotional wellbeing of our staff and pupils
Ensure mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support is provided
Offer provision and interventions that matches the needs of its pupils and staff
Engage the whole school community in the importance of mental health awareness
Capture the views of parents, pupils and teachers on mental health issues
We were delighted to be awarded recognition at the end of July 2021 for our work. To read the Verification Report, please click here.
