Wellbeing Steering Group

Northern Counties School  has a wellbeing steering group  which was formed to :

  • Evaluate current practices
  • Develop new initiatives to promote wellbeing
  • Make realistic and achievable improvements in the wellbeing of our students and staff

The team members are a group of staff in a range of roles who work across school- teachers, support staff , HLSSAs and therapists.

We are currently working towards achieving the  ‘Carnegie Recommendations for improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in schools award’.  The award is a framework for whole school mental health development and is designed to strengthen wellbeing. To achieve the award, the school will demonstrate a commitment to working towards excellent practice by making mental health and wellbeing core to everything we do.
