Mental Health Champions

Welcome to our Mental Health Champions page

Our Mental Health Champions help promote positive mental health and wellbeing within our school setting.

With this peer to peer support at the heart of our whole school approach, we encourage normalising talking about emotions and feelings, and seeking help and support if any child is feeling vulnerable.

Our Mental Health Champions are made up of six Yr5 & Yr6 pupils, who have applied for the positions and demonstrated that they have a keen interetst in learning about peer support around mental health and wellbeing.

The chosen children will attend 2 initial training sessions with the Senior Mental Health Lead. This will centre around what positive mental health looks like and also learning about active and empathic listening. There will be on-going support for them throughout the year, as well as our half termly MHC meetings.

The Role of a Mental Health Champion

To promote positive mental health and wellbeing within school by;

  • being a buddy on the playground to approach children they can see are upset and offer support and advice
  • to promote special days or events in school that focus on mental health and wellbeing
  • creating displays that show the many different aspects of work the school is undertaking to support good mental health and wellbeing
  • share any concerns with the Senior Mental Health Lead or another trusted adult
  • give children some basic strategies on how to monitor their mental wellbeing

Our Mental Health Champions play a vital role in our whole school appraoch to promoting and practicing good mental and emotional health.

We are very proud of each of them and the way they take on their responsibilities with such enthusiasm and passion.
