Mental Health

At Roebuck Academy we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families and our staff. We know that everyone experiences life changes and challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play

  • Help children to feel comfortable sharing any of their concerns or worries
  • Help children socially to form positive, effective and lasting relationships 
  • Promote positive self-esteem and to ensure that children know they count, are valued and are special
  • Encourage children to be confident in themselves and to celebrate their unique qualities and differences 
  • Help develop children's resilience and determination to ensure that they can experience success
  • Help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks 
  • Help children to develop a growth mindset

 

We offer different levels of support:

Additional support: For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement
