Mental Health & Wellbeing
At St Clere's School all members of staff are committed to support the wellbeing of all our students. We have Mental Health and wellbeing embedded within our school curriculum and tied to the co-operative values of self responsibility, openness, self help and caring for others. All of our staff have received training to look out for any signs of students struggling with mental health and know where to guide them for help. We are currently planning to train students as Mental Health ambassadors across all of the year groups and we have a well established peer mentor programme to offer student-to-student support for our students.
For those who need it we have a range of support available including school counsellors, individual mentoring, intervention groups for anxiety, stress and anger management.
If you feel that your child needs support, please contact the school via their form tutor. There are also a number of useful online resources available on the Sources of Support section of this page.
