Wellbeing Award for Schools

Here at Dysart, we value the mental health and well-being of all our pupils, staff, parents, carers and everyone in our school community. For the past 2 years, Dysart has been working towards achieving the Wellbeing award for Schools. We signed up to this award to further develop our work to promote positive wellbeing and mental health for the whole school community and gain accreditation for the work we have already done. It also ties in with our school values where we communicate well, show respect, are kind, caring and considerate and strive for excellence.

Achieving this award requires the involvement of all members of the school community: staff, parents, pupils, and partner organisations beyond the school gates. As we have gone through our journey, we have been listening to all parts of the school and beyond to understand the challenges they face and how we can best support them.  During this time, we hope you have noticed the changes that have taken place, from the formation of the parent hub to changes in how we can support our pupils from an MHWB point of view to recognising staff contribution throughout the year.

At the start of July, we will be assessed to see if we have achieved the award. However, this is not the end of the journey. We will continue to make promoting emotional wellbeing and positive mental health a priority of the school. To achieve this, we have developed a whole school strategy and vision statement which builds on the successes to date and which we feel will continue to have a significant positive impact on pupils, staff and parents.

About the Wellbeing Award for Schools

The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of for pupils, staff and parents. The award will enable us to develop these practices where necessary and help us to ensure that wellbeing is embedded in the long-term culture of our school. It will help us to create an environment where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.

When we have achieved the award, we will have demonstrated our commitment to:

–  Promoting mental health as part of everyday school life

–  Improving the emotional wellbeing of our staff, pupils, parents and carers

–  Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided

–  Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of our pupils and staff

–  Promoting the importance of mental health awareness

–  Capturing the views of parents, pupils and staff on mental health issues

 

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
