At Heathfield Schools Partnership we aim to actively promote the mental and physical wellbeing of the children and adults in our school community.
Our staff team are dedicated to promote, monitor and support the wellbeing of all. As a school we believe in working together with families to support children's emotional wellbeing and offer a range of interventions and resources to do so.
This year, we are taking part in a scheme run by Richmond Borough which involves the setting up of Mental Health Support Teams to provide preventative support, deliver evidence-based psychological early interventions in schools and create better links with wider services.
They offer a variety of support through individual interventions, group work and a whole-school approach.
The school has been allocated an EWP (Education Wellbeing Practitioner) whose role it will be to work with specific parents to support their children with their emotional wellbeing.
