Emotional Health and Wellbeing at South Kirkby Academy
Please do not hesitate to speak to any one of us at school about you or your child’s mental health and wellbeing – there is a lot of support available, and school is here to help.
During a child’s educational journey they spend approximately 8000 hours at school. With children spending such a vast portion of their time in the classroom, this places school in a ideal position to promote positive emotional well being and identify’s early changes in behavior and signs of mental distress. Emotional well being is accurate indicator of academic achievement and success in later life. Research has demonstrated that health and well being provision in school can lead to significant results in children’s mental health, social and emotional skills.
At South Kirkby Academy we have a dedicated wellbeing team who are devoted to supporting the emotional needs of all pupils.
