World Mental Health Day

At Inmans we are committed to safeguarding both our pupils and our staff. As part of this commitment we look to care for their mental as well as physical health.

As it is mental health day we thought we would take this opportunity to share with you the steps we have put in place to achieve this:

· Daily check in with pupils and staff

· Dedicated ELSA (Mrs Lilley) – who is available to help pupils and their families who are in need of support

· Mental health first aider who has been trained to identify and provide support to those in need

· Health and well-being policy

· Roll out of well-being questionnaire and actions identified upon review of the results

· Commitment to SMSC (spiritual moral social and cultural)- the school have recently been accredited as a gold standard and become a beacon school to help share best practise with others

· Fully trained staff in safeguarding and child protection including Prevent and social media safety

We will be showcasing our commitment to mental health during the consultation evenings on 23/24 October.

We will have:

Meet the team- including Mrs Lilley, educational psychologist, youth and family support and the children’s centre. All will be available to chat to and gather information regarding services available to support children and families. This is not a drop in clinic it is for information only. There will be lots of leaflets to take away. Please come along to find out more about the services that are in offer both inside and outside of school.

CEOP (child exploitation and online protection) training run by Principal Resourcing who will be giving out information on how to keep your child safe online
