Mental Health & Wellbeing

Wellfield School has a team of staff who are available to support students with their mental health and wellbeing in school. This includes Year Managers, Learning Support Assistants, Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA), Assistant Headteacher for Care and Guidance and the School Counsellor. Students are able to speak to their identified Year Managers around any concerns they may have or a request for support and then a plan of support will be put in place. This could be in the form of Year Manager Intervention, ELSA intervention, a referral into the school counsellor or a referral to an external support network if necessary. 

Wellfield School are investing in our Mental Health and Wellbeing support Network and have identified the need to widen the offer of support available to students. 

We are now a Piece of Mind School and we work with Sarah Liddell – Educational Mental Health Practitioner.

Aside from in school support there is a variety of outside Mental Health Support agencies which families can liaise directly with if they feel additional support is needed.
