Supporting our children’s mental well-being
At Jerry Clay Academy Wellbeing is a school priority.
We have a 3 step tiered approach to support this area through:
- Quality First Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum for all- PHSE Curriculum (Please see ‘Curriculum Tab’ for further information)
- Targeted support – From our dedicated pastoral team – Mrs Wood- Pastoral Lead, Mr Palin- SENCo & Mrs Elliott- Headteacher
- Wider Strategies– Led by Mr Palin, SENCo & Mrs Wood Wellbeing/ Pastoral Lead (PHSE/RSE, SEND, Safeguarding, Safe and Happy). These strategies include guiding additional targeted support in school, referrals to other professionals and specialists, signposting to information and organisations that can provide parents and carers with guidance and support.
- Bespoke Strategies– This approach is supported by the Headteacher and our PSHE Leader, Mrs Burrows and teacher led assemblies, the work of our ‘Mental Health’ Ambassador, the focus of our ‘Wellbeing Charter’ for both children and adults.
