SILVER Mental Health Award
I am delighted to start Children’s Mental Health week with the fabulous news that Mildmay Primary School has been accredited as a Carnegie Mentally Healthy School and achieved the prestigious SILVER standard.
A great deal of work goes into ensuring that we promote positive mental health for all our staff and children and support those to overcome their difficulties when they experience negative mental health.
Particular thanks go to Mrs Bird and Mrs Foley for leading our wellbeing and mental health programme and compiling the successful accreditation, but this achievement is genuinely a whole team success with every member of staff and every child playing their part to receive this recognition.
Whether it is through pastoral support, PSHE, Forest School, Votes for Schools, sporting opportunity & achievement, charity contribution, Mental Health First Aid, the Community Award, extra-curricular participation, Zones of Regulation, music and performance, effective safeguarding practice, e-safety, celebration or high quality learning and classroom experiences, we endeavour to ensure that your child’s mental health and wellbeing is at the forefront of our planning and teaching each and every day.
I would, therefore, like you to join with me in saying well done and thank you to Team Mildmay and also to accept my personal thanks to you all for the continued and unwavering support that helps to make Mildmay Primary School such a positive place for us all to be.
