Focus on Mental Health

The West Essex Teaching Schools Alliance is focusing on Mental Health in Schools. So what are we doing?

1. Teaching and Leadership CPD

From the ITT programme to Headteacher courses, all of our Teaching and Leadership courses will include a module or section on Mental Health and Wellbeing. These focus on everybody: children, teachers, school leaders, support staff.

2. Wellness at Work sessions

3. Training for Mental Health and Wellbeing Leads in Schools

We are running the Leading a Mentally Healthy School programme for school leaders.

This 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” (Dec 2017) 

It is being delivered nationally using the Teaching School cascade model.
