Mental Health & Wellbeing

At Brookmans Park School, we are committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, parents, carers, staff and other stakeholders.

We foster a sense of friendship and community, where each individual is valued. At our school, we aim to promote positive mental health and well-being for our whole school community; pupils, staff, parents and carers, and recognise how important mental health and emotional well-being is to our lives in just the same way as physical health.


As part of the school’s commitment to promoting positive mental health and wellbeing for all pupils, the school offers support to all pupils by:


  • Promoting British values as well as the school values
  • Encouraging a sense of kindness, friendship and community
  • Raising awareness of mental health during assemblies, PSHE lessons, Mental Health Awareness Week and other themed days/weeks/events
  • Promotion of Five Ways to Wellbeing through assemblies and whole school events
  • Providing pupils with ‘I want my teacher to know’ boxes in each class so that they can alert their teacher to things that are worrying them
  • To use Zones of Regulation to help children communicate/express how they are feeling
  • Monitoring of all pupils’ mental health through pupil voice and pupil surveys
  • Appointing a Senior Mental Health Lead with a strategic oversight of our whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing 
  • Making classrooms a safe space to discuss mental health and wellbeing by ensuring staff are emotionally available to pupils
  • Children to be aware of who the Mental Health Lead is
  • Celebrating academic and non-academic achievements
  • Working with parents/carers to support their child/children’s mental health
  • Providing targeted support to individuals and groups of children

We promote the 5 Ways to Wellbeing at Brookmans Park School, through whole school 'Wellbeing Wednesday' assemblies and whole school activities. 


1. Connect: Good relationships improve mental wellbeing.

2. Active: Good for the mind and body.

3. Give: Acts of giving and kindness create positive feelings.

4. Learn: Learning new skills can help develop confidence and self-esteem.

5. Take notice: Paying attention to your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
