Redcar and Cleveland Schools, Gold, Partners and Passion!
What an amazing start to 2022/23 academic year the Redcar and Cleveland HeadStart Team have had and they cannot thank schools enough for their support and passion.
Since September, John and Julie have trained up 106 Bronze Award HeadStarters and 112 Silver Award Peer Mentors, in 10 schools across Redcar and Cleveland. These pupils are now trained to look after their own emotional wellbeing, promote positive mental health and build resilience in their schools. These young people will be supporting their school’s Mental Health Leads throughout the year by raising awareness, supporting their fellow classmates and facilitating wellbeing sessions in school.
5 schools have signed up to partner with HeadStart; entering into a partnership with HeadStart provides schools and colleges access to services, support and opportunities by collaboratively working with the team.
2 schools, Dormanstown Primary Academy and St Benedict’s Catholic Primary, have achieved the HeadStart Gold Award for all their work in ensuring pupils are given the necessary support to build their resilience and maintain their good mental health. The schools have made a commitment to their community by carrying out a thorough audit of their whole school practices using the resilience framework. The framework reviews the schools’ governance, school policies, classroom practices, staff wellbeing and the school’s graduated response to pupil wellbeing.
37 pupils have taken part in intervention programmes, this includes 16 pupils taking part in Tuff Tees and 21 participating in Super You. These short programmes offer small group intervention around wellbeing, confidence and are great fun while learning.
18 schools have taken part in school assemblies around mental health, stress and sharing kindness, over 4500 pupils attended these.
The team has great plans for the next few terms in this academic year, if you are not a part of this yet, then get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
