Mental Health and Wellbeing

At St. Elizabeth's we believe that valuable learning and life achievements depend on much more than quality first teaching or the tracking of pupil progress and attainment. We ensure that every member of our staff considers each child's broader well-being as being of utmost importance. Therefore, we create opportunities and take the time to get to know the children in our care well and, when necessary, aim to support them and their families in addressing any issues in their Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH).

St. Elizabeth's Support Network

We have a proactive approach to supporting our children and their families, including:

  • A Mental Health and Well-being Leads, Mrs Kelly and Mrs McLaughlin. 
  • Trained Safeguarding leads; Mrs Kelly, Mrs McLaughlin and Mrs Bambrick 
  • specialist support from teaching assistants for pupils that need it,
  • Trust Social Worker for 1:1 support for pupils and families,
  • School Nurse for 1:1 support for pupils and families, 
  • Drop in sessions with the Trust Social Worker, the School Nurse and Mrs Bambrick. 
  • Pupil parliament communication team member from every KS2 class to promote well-being

  • whole school assemblies to promote and support SEMH;
