Mental Health & Wellbeing

Here at The Bemrose School we have adopted a whole school approach to emotional health that goes beyond the learning and teaching in the classroom to pervade all aspects of life in school from breakfast club before school, to period 6 and night school at the end of the day.  Should you need support or information on emotional health, hopefully you will find the contacts below helpful.

Students

Within school there are a wide variety of services available for pupils to maintain good emotional health. Some of these are form tutors and teaching staff who are always available to support and talk to pupils. Heads of House, and the head space room (M9), along with many more interventions are available, should the need arise.
