Pastoral Support and Wellbeing
Young people’s mental health and wellbeing has never been so important. These statistics show just how big the problem is for young people in the UK.
One in six children aged five to 16 were identified as having a probable mental health problem in July 2020, a huge increase from one in nine in 2017. That’s five children in every classroom (NHS Digital (2020): 'Mental Health of Children and Young People in England', prevalence survey)
Young people today have to navigate a complex and ever-changing world, facing challenges and pressures in numerous aspects of their life.
Evidence shows that mental health and wellbeing programmes in schools, can lead to significant improvements in children’s mental health, and social and emotional skills. Wellbeing provision in schools can also lead to reductions in classroom misbehaviour and bullying. (EEF Toolkit)
At Travis St Lawrence, our curriculum is at the heart of our drive for excellence, offering purposeful learning opportunities, which aim to excite, encourage and engage all learners. We are committed to providing all learners with a broad, deep and relevant education whilst also preparing them for their lives ahead. We strive that all children leave Travis with the skills, knowledge, understanding, emotional intelligence and attitudes to succeed as they move through life.
We offer a tiered approach to pastoral support and wellbeing in school, dependent on individual needs.
