Mental Health


‘Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community’ (World Health Organisation).


At St Michael with St John, our Christian vision shapes everything we do.  We care for, support and protect our pupils whilst they are growing and learning with us, and encourage them to do the same for each other and the wider community.  We inspire them to become confident, inquiring citizens and develop them to be capable of achieving in life, to develop academically and socially, and to succeed in school and beyond. 


Through our vision we aim to promote positive mental health for every member of our staff team and for pupils. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at pupils and staff that we have identified as being vulnerable.


We have two members of staff who are youth mental health first aiders - Miss Qadri and Mrs Hester. Miss Qadri is also an adult mental health first aider.
