Mental Health and Wellbeing at Hartshead

Mental Health and wellbeing is everyone's responsibility. As a school, Hartshead is in a unique position, we are able to help prevent mental health problems by promoting resilience as part of an integrated, whole school approach that is tailored to the needs of our pupils. 

A whole school approach is one that goes beyond the teaching in the classroom to pervade all aspects of school life, including:

• culture, ethos and environment: the health and wellbeing of pupils and staff is promoted through the ‘hidden’ or ‘informal’ curriculum, including leadership practice, the school’s policies, values and attitudes, together with the social and physical environment;

• teaching: using the curriculum to develop pupils’ knowledge about health and wellbeing; and

• partnerships with families and the community: proactive engagement with families, outside agencies, and the wider community to promote consistent support for children’s health and wellbeing


Hartshead Care Crew

The Care Crew are pupils who are available at lunchtimes and breaktimes to ensure that there is always someone to listen. The Care Crew will ensure that children speak to a trusted adult when they are sad, scared or worried.
