Emotional Wellbeing

" ... while providing a nest to come home to."

 

At Overthorpe C of E Academy we are very proud of our emotional support, our mental health support and our well-being support, for pupils and staff. 

We have a dedicated Mental Health and Wellbeing team, led by Mrs Allott. This team delivers interventions such as "Who am I?", "Drawing and Talking therapy" and "Winston's Wish", as well as bespoke offers in order to meet the needs of pupils in school. 

The school is a member of "Kirklees Keep in Mind", which enables pupils to access additional workshops around well-being, staff to continue to develop their skills through appropriate training, parents to be supported by a trained support worker and pupil referrals to mental heath practioners to be made.
