The Aspire Academy Trust is committed to supporting positive mental health and the Aspire Mental Health Policy is available below.
The ‘Leading a Mentally Healthy School’ training programme has been developed by Health Education England (HEE) and the School Development Support Agency (SDSA), in partnership with an expert group of educational psychologists, education consultants and mental health organisations and responds to the areas highlighted in the recent Green Paper – ‘Transforming Children & Young People’s Mental Health Provision’ (December 2017).
- Are there sufficient staff able to get to school in order to ensure safe child/adult ratios?
- Do conditions on school grounds pose a risk to the health and safety of pupils, parents and staff?
- Is the temperature in school within accepted guidelines, and are all facilities (water, electricity, toilets and
- kitchen) operational?
- Are conditions forecast to worsen, which may put staff and parents driving home at risk?
