At Burton Borough, we believe in promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. Prioritising the wellbeing of students and staff ensures that outstanding teaching and learning can take place, and that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive.

Promoting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health in our students enables them to better understand and manage their feelings. The emotional health and wellbeing of students underpins the entire school experience. Every child has emotional needs and we feel that as a school we have a responsibility to provide a nurturing and supportive environment in which learners can develop confidence and emotional resilience in order to achieve their full potential and therefore enhance their capacity to learn.

We are currently working with a number of outside agencies including Merulae Limited and CAMHS to provide a package of support for our students. We have been able to secure a Mental Health Nurse who is in school working with staff and students once a week.

Through our CLL programme we take part in Mindfulness Monday where we are able to reflect upon various values and set goals for the week ahead.

We are able to offer a series of drop in sessions from October 30th. If you feel your child would benefit from any of these please encourage them to drop in for a chat with our Mental Health Nurse.
