We are proud to say that we take the health and wellbeing of all our staff very seriously.
We are very pleased to announce its engagement of a Wellbeing and Mental Health Champion for the Trust. Mrs Bev Lynch holds a Mental Health First Aider Certificate; RSA Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork; and an MA in Counselling Studies.
This role is to support any Trust employees wishing to discuss their personal wellbeing and mental health. This will be a confidential service and Bev will offer a verbal contract of anonymity to all callers. Without any reference to identifying personal details Bev will feedback to the Trust general staff concerns so that these can be addressed Trust-wide.
In school, staff have the support of a designated Wellbeing officer (Mrs Rebecca Briggs) who is on hand to offer guidance and support with a range of wellbeing concerns. Our wellbeing board in the staffroom is updated regularly with helpful links and information.
Wellbeing is based on our self-belief and self-esteem. When we like ourselves, we are far more likely to be kinder and more understanding when interacting with others.
Bev can be contacted for confidential advice and support
