Mental Health Ambassadors
Our Wellbeing Ambassadors programme gives our children the skills and attitudes to support the growth of their peers' wellbeing. It also inspires pupils to take ownership of and direct initiatives for promoting wellbeing within our school. Wellbeing Ambassadors are pupils who have shown a real interest in championing positive mental health and wellbeing. These pupils are keen to share their learning around mental health and advertise the importance of self-care. The Ambassadors have a responsibility for leading and promoting wellbeing throughout school, they drive the message forward and release the stigma around talking about challenging feelings and encourage people to talk. Wellbeing Ambassadors provide feedback on what’s working well and highlight any gaps in whole-school approaches to wellbeing.
