WELLBEING AND MENTAL HEALTH

The Wellbeing of our school community is paramount and we take pride in the care and support we provide to our learners. We recognise that if young people are able to understand their emotional wellbeing, knowing how to stay mentally, physically and emotionally well then they are better equipped to achieve success and happiness. 

Honywood fosters excellent relationships between learners and the adults who work in the school and this provides an environment where each young person is fully supported and knows where to go if they need help and support. The first layer of support begins with their Learning Group Leaders (LGLs) who have a key role in providing wellbeing support for the learners in their learning group. They are an important part of the learner's life at school, providing a regular and friendly face at the start and end of each school day. The learners also have the support of their Cohort Leader (CL) who also adds an additional layer of support to their LGL. 

Through our Learning Session 5 programme (PSHE curriculum) learners are able to develop their knowledge and understanding about important themes which can impact on their mental, physical and emotional health. This programme is delivered by their LGLs which provides a trusting and supportive environment where these themes can be explored in a sensitive and nurturing way.

To help promote and support Wellbeing, the learners have access to the school's wellbeing website which provides a range of supportive tools and links to various topics which can affect young people's mental health.
