Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. (World Health Organisation 2014)

At Mellor, linked to our vision statement, Be The Best You Can Be, we are determined to continue to promote positive mental health and wellbeing. We believe in teamwork; working with each other, with teachers and colleagues across the school, with the wider school community and most importantly with the young people in our school. We act with determination and resilience. Whatever issues our students, their families, the school, our team or the community face, we always support, react and pull together. Finally, we are committed to making a difference; we are not passive players in young people’s lives but active participants who can and do make a real difference. We aim to support our pupils with their protected factors, reduce the risk factors and build resilience and coping strategies to be used into adulthood.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Highlights

Mental Health Awareness Day

#HelloYellow

Charity - Guide Dogs 

Anti-Bullying Week 

One Kind Word

 

To raise awareness, we all wore an item which was yellow! We learnt why it is important to look after our mental health and how to support each other. 

Helping others can really boost our mental health. We raised money for Guide Dogs UK, watched a talk and got to meet a guide dog user and ask questions.

As part of Anti-Bullying Week, the message was One Kind Word. We had an assembly which looked at the science behind what being kind does to our mental health! 

Wellbeing Champions (pupil voice)

 

Positive Peaceful Places Award

Our Wellbeing Champions have been busy! They have created inspirational posters for each classroom, been trained in ELSA (how to resolve conflict) and designed a home school challenge! 

 

 We have successfully obtained the Positive Peaceful Places award! They were impressed with our positive, friendly feel, the behaviour and the pride the children have in the school!
