"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 Organization)
Here at St Luke's Academy, we work hard to make sure that all of our children are happy to come to school and that they have sufficient support to enable them to engage fully in all areas of school life. We promote a range of whole-school approaches and activities to maintain our happy and respectful school community and to support the mental health and wellbeing of all of our staff and pupils.
In our school, our whole school values shape all that we do. Through our three values of respect, kindness and perseverance, combined with high-quality teaching and a creative, stimulating curriculum, we inspire caring and compassionate children to be confident, resilient, independent thinkers ready to face life's challenges in an ever-changing world.
Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself and at St Luke's Academy the students will take part in a range of lessons and activities that focuses on supporting our students.
