What We Have Achieved
At Charlton Park Academy, we care about the wellbeing of staff, students, and parents and are always looking for ways that can help support each and every person. We achieved the Wellbeing for a school award on the 24/03/2023, which will help us to ensure we continue to focus on adopting effective measures and practice to promote emotional wellbeing and mental health across the school.
“The school works immensely hard on the wellbeing of all of their stakeholders and this effort has a demonstrable impact on the open culture of the school in relation to wellbeing and mental health. It is my recommendation that the school receive the Wellbeing Award for Schools as a celebration of their dedication to the wellbeing of their school community.”
The award will enable us at Charlton Park Academy to focus on the long-term culture of the school and embed an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all. The process of achieving the award will involve staff, students, and parent evaluations.
We have appointed a change team to implement the well-being award and the team works closely with the whole school community to support positive mental; health and wellbeing for all. We also have student wellbeing ambassadors that work hard to listen to students across the whole school to enable effective change in supporting students’ mental health and wellbeing.
We have a Mental Health Lead, Sara Johnson who is leading on completing the award along with senior leaders, our wellbeing governor, the wellbeing team, students, and also parents.
There are eight objectives to achieve within the Well-being Award Framework, containing several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) set out within each. The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional well-being and mental health of both staff and students. The award will enable us to develop these practices where necessary and help us to ensure that well-being is embedded in the long-term culture of our school. It will help us to create an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.
With this award, we will demonstrate our commitment to:
- Promoting mental health as part of everyday school life.
- Improving the emotional well-being of our staff and students.
- Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided.
- Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of our students and staff.
- Promoting the importance of mental health awareness
- Capturing the views of parents, students, and teachers on mental health issues.
