At St Joseph’s we aim to support all of our pupils not only with their academic progress but also their physical and mental wellbeing.
Mental health provision is universally provided for all pupils through ‘wellbeing Friday’ delivered during tutor time. We aim to provide an ethos and learning environment that promotes the health and wellbeing of all by promoting resilience in our pupils where they feel safe and supported. We aim to develop trusting relationships so pupils can talk honestly and openly about their feelings.
Below are links to some of the most common wellbeing support sites for our pupils to develop their wellbeing. Please contact school or your child’s head of year should you wish to discuss any other support that is not listed below:
