Student Wellbeing

Mental Health Redden Court.mp4

At the Redden Court School, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that the students' mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. All children go through ups and downs during their school career and some face significant life events. We therefore have set our working practise up to provide a wrap around care that can help students, both inside and outside of school, to support themselves and also allow us to provide support when it is needed.

The image below encapsulates our key offer for students.

Finally, we appreciate that parents will sometimes need additional guidance for themselves in the ever complicating world.
