Whole school framework

Children’s emotional health and wellbeing has a huge impact on their ability to learn. One in ten children and young people aged 5 to 16 have a clinically diagnosed mental health disorder and around one in seven has less severe problems.

A whole-school approach is vital to improving children’s emotional health and wellbeing, helping to keep them safe, improve behaviour and raise achievement.

Our mental health delivery helps schools to promote positive mental health in their pupils and identify and address those with less severe problems at an early stage and build their resilience.

In order to help their pupils succeed, NeuroHeadway offers a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy.

NeuroHeadway follows 7 principles for a whole-school wellbeing, in the context of the current Ofsted Framework and related judgements, which are:

  1. Ethos and environment
  2. Curriculum, teaching and learning
  3. Pupil Voice
  4. Staff Development, health and wellbeing
  5. Identifying need and monitoring impact
  6. Working with parents / carers
  7. Targeted support

This service also helps schools identify and support pupils with more severe needs and help them make appropriate referrals to specialist agencies such as: Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), where necessary.

The key areas guiding our whole school approach for developing emotional health and wellbeing (EHWB) are:

  • Getting a shared understanding and commitment to change and development
  • Building relationships and developing practices with individual schools
  • Implementation and evaluation

Where chronic problems occur, our practitioner or psychologist will be able to advice you with and additional support elsewhere, including from medical professionals working in specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), voluntary organisations and local GPs.
