Mental Health and Wellbeing


Kate Rigby is the Designated Mental Health Lead at Winslow Church of England School and can be contacted via the School Office  01296 712296 or by email krigby@winslow.bucks.sch.uk

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 2014)

Mental illness is often invisible, but that doesn’t mean it should be hidden. Statistics show that most people suffer from poor mental health at some point in their lives and at Winslow Church of England School we aim to support the emotional wellbeing of all of our children, their families and our staff.

Winslow Church of England School’s ethos and staff actively promote emotional wellbeing; we recognise that happier pupils are more successful learners and responsible individuals. We also recognise the responsibility that education has in the development and enhancement of emotional wellbeing.

Our Aim

Supporting Children

A holistic approach where the school environment supports wellbeing:

A dedicated Mental Health Team who offer a range of targeted support to vulnerable pupils.

Working with Parents and Carers

Our School’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Team are always on hand to support families. We operate an ‘open door’ policy and there is always someone available to talk and offer the help that is needed, whether that be from school staff or by helping parents to access the appropriate professional organisation, such as the Buckinghamshire Mental Health Team or Young Carers.
