Mental Health and Wellbeing Advice

At Newland School for Girls we pride ourselves on promoting good mental health and emotional wellbeing in all of our students. Each student is unique as should their support within school be.


Our wellbeing co-ordinator Danielle McKeown is a qualified children's social worker with 15 years post graduate experience and also trained in the role of Senior Mental Health Lead


The emotional wellbeing hub has been created with a vision to transform the way that mental health and emotional wellbeing is delivered within Newland School for Girls. Miss McKeown will be available to support identified students either through group or 1:1 work. The hub is available as a safe space to support students who are experiencing difficulties with their emotional wellbeing and mental health which is preventing them from being able to fully integrate into mainstream lessons.


Miss McKeown works in partnership with the pastoral team to create a tailored package of support to each student.


Miss McKeown is also able to make referrals to outside agencies such as Headstart, Mind, Young Carers, Turn To Us, Refresh or CAMHS.


Mental Health Practitioner

Newland school for girls is proud to work in partnership with the NHS Educational Mental Health Practitioners who are able to provide more in depth targeted intervention.


The MHSTs will work across education, health and care, in collaboration with existing early intervention provision, will provide consultation to support schools and colleges to identify and manage issues relating to mental health and wellbeing, as well as delivering high quality evidence based interventions for children, young people and families who experience mild and moderate needs, requesting specialist support as necessary.
