We are committed to providing outstanding opportunities for all our students to enable them to become the best that they can be.
Positive emotional wellbeing and mental health is key to achieving this. Research has shown that there are key links between emotional wellbeing and progress at school. Figures show that around one in ten children and young people have a diagnosable mental health condition which can have a devastating impact on their physical health, their relationships and their future prospects. It has been shown that half of all mental health conditions begin before the age of 14.
Crosshill School is therefore committed to a whole school approach to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of all students, staff and parents.
Crosshill School values the positive relationships it has built between staff, students, parents and carers. The friendly environment enables students to feel valued and trusted as individuals and mutual respect is shown for each other. This fosters an open forum allowing pupils, staff and parents to speak about emotional wellbeing and health.
We can proudly say that we are on track to complete the Wellbeing Award for Schools by the end of this school year to promote and develop the mental health and resilience of our staff, children, parents and carers
