Leading a Mentally Healthy School

Leading a Mentally Healthy School

Leading a Mentally Healthy School is a new two-day programme, aimed at senior leaders of all phases to enable reflection and action planning around whole-school approaches to mental health provision.

The programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA) in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).

Leading a Mentally Healthy School aims:

  • to enable and empower senior leaders to put mental health at the heart of strategic school improvement.
  • to equip senior leaders with practical and sustainable approaches that can be implemented on return to school.

Enjoyed practical activities

I enjoyed the practical activities and think that they would be useful to share with colleagues.

Great training oppotunity

Great training opportunity for subject leaders to gain greater knowledge / experience to lead a group of teachers.  Good networking for the future too!

Good model to use for moderation.

Good model to use for moderation broken down so it can be identified in books and strengths identified and gaps.

Fantastic coverage of ideas

Fantastic coverage of ideas that I can use during my own moderation meetings.

Super ideas to use manipulatives

Super ideas to use manipulatives to support and enhance learning.  Great examples to use questions to support greater depth.

Very effective.  Well delivered, full of ideas and excellent opportunities for senior leaders to apply to the moderation element across the consortium.
