Supporting Mental Health
At Eggbuckland Community College, we recognise the importance of supporting students as they develop emotionally, socially, and mentally. We all have Mental Health and just like Physical health, we all need support sometimes when we are struggling. Adolescence is a difficult time for a number of reasons but we are committed to providing the highest standard of care for our students and ensuring we are doing all we can to help them with their Mental Health.
Our Inclusion and Pastoral teams includes staff trained in: Counselling, STORM training, Trauma informed training in addition to years of experience providing high quality Pastoral care.
School based anxiety
It is important to acknowledge that school can present challenges for a number of reasons and can cause some anxiety for students at times. Whether this is exam based, peer issues or attachment issues, we are dedicated to do all we can to remove or minimise any anxieties where possible. Students deserve to feel happy and safe in school so we look to support students in a variety of ways to ensure they feel this way.
Children’s Mental Health week
Children’s Mental Health week this year is 6th February -12th February 2023. This week is an excellent opportunity to remind students about the importance of looking after their own Mental Health, but also how to look out for others and develop their empathy which is something we are very passionate about. The students will have the opportunity to take part in activities during this week in addition to we what we already do throughout the year to promote student’s Wellbeing and supporting them with their Mental Health.
