Promoting positive wellbeing and mental health for the whole school community
Ernest Bevin College successfully achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools, administered by Award Place, in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau in February 2020.
This award recognises our work to promote positive wellbeing and mental health for the whole collegel community and gain accreditation for the work we have already done. It also ties in with our Bevin values particularly, Building Resilience.
About the award
There are eight objectives to achieve within the Wellbeing Award Framework, containing several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) set out within each. The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils. The award has enabled us to develop these practices where necessary and help us to ensure that wellbeing is imbedded in the long-term culture of our college. It will help us to create an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.
This award demonstrates Ernest Bevin’s commitment to:
- Promoting mental health as part of every day college life
- Improving the emotional wellbeing of our staff and students
- Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
- Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of our students and staff
- Promoting the importance of mental health awareness
- Capturing the views of parents, students and teachers on mental health issues
