At St Pauls CE School, Newcastle, it is our vision that mental health and wellbeing is woven through all aspects of school life. Our vision for ‘a school which welcomes all and maintains a caring environment for the benefit of all pupils, staff, governors, volunteers and visitors’ highlights the importance that we place on valuing the whole school community. Our aim is to make a difference to the learning and wellbeing of all of our learners. We actively promote positive mental health and offer personalised support to all members of the school community.

Mental Health and wellbeing is a collective responsibility across the school community. All members of the school community are encouraged by our Senior Mental Health Leader to contribute ideas on how we can develop. We value the views of every member of the school community so we offer regular opportunities for all stakeholders to feedback on wellbeing across the school and how we can improve this further.

The Mental Health Leader understands the agreed priorities from feedback across school and supports the co-ordination of our provision. There are agreed outcomes for improvement and these are shared with the school community. To support a successful implementation of change we embed changes in teaching, training, monitoring and evaluation.
