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 for students Linda Iveson, who is also the deputy safeguarding lead and pastoral co-ordinator
Our wellbeing co-ordinator for staff is Cath Rudkin, who is a qualified senior mental health lead and a member of our senior leadership team.
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 Skelton 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 Skelton works in partnership with the pastoral team to create a tailored package of support to each student.
Mrs Iveson 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.
