Mental Health Week

An Important Issue

Last week, we marked National Mental Health Awareness week. However, at Westholme we pride ourselves on ensuring that all our community, pupils and staff, are given access to support for all health related issues every week.

Our newly updated Mental Health Policy enables us all to support each other and follow procedures relating to best practice and protocol.

Mrs Hodson, our School Nurse is a qualified mental health first aider and Michelle Goodall, our School Counsellor (pictured below), has become an incredibly valuable member of our community.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s Class Teacher or Head of Year if you have any concerns.
