Mental Health

Young Minds Matter

We are delighted we have been given the opportunity to take part in a national programme to help make mental health support for children and young people more available when they need it. The programme is called Young Mind Matter, more details can be found on their website YoungMinds | Mental Health Charity For Children And Young People | YoungMinds

This support will provide valuable resource for our pupils to help them with life’s ups and down, for example, with issues such as anxiety, friendship concerns, exam stress and challenging behaviour.

Young Mind Matters support may involve group work and/or individual, one-to-one support in school. Where appropriate, the YMM will also link up with other specialist mental health services in Gloucestershire. Young Minds Matter will also support parents and teachers to help children and young people who are experiencing difficulties.

Please read the attached parent consent letter and feel free to contact the school for further information.
