At Chadsmead we take the mental health and well-being of our pupils seriously. While we recognise our responsibility to ensure our children are given every opportunity to be the best they can be academically, we also understand that we need to help equip them fully for life beyond school, including teaching them how to be resilient and how to cope when things don’t go to plan.

We aim to promote positive mental health through all we do, recognising that children need to be both resilient and mentally healthy in order to meet their full potential both academically in in life more widely.

When teaching about mental health we aim to give children the information that they need to make good decisions about their own wellbeing. It should enable them to recognise what is normal and what is an issue in themselves and others and, when issues arise, know how to seek support as early as possible from appropriate sources.

We have considered Chadsmead's Offer with particular reference to social, emotional and mental health needs. Please look at the document below:

Chadsmead Primary Academy has been a key contributor to our Academy Trust’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Minimum Offer, which can be found below. This document details what we pledge in terms of support for every child in our school to help support mental health and wellbeing, along with what we provide for those who need additional targeted support and finally what is in place for those needing specialised provision.

This is a new offer and still in its infancy but we are committed to ensuring all aspects of the offer are in place over the subsequent academic years.

There are many organisations available to help. Below are some that have been recommended by the Education Hub.
Hope4U is a new support service for any families that my finding the following areas of life challenging and wish to access help or support to overcome the difficulties they are facing. You can access the support service directly through WPD@HOPE4U.CO.UK  - there is no need to inform school.  Please see the poster for the types of support the service is offering and our click below for the self-referral form.
Kind regards

The summer holidays can be a particularly challenging time for those dealing with addiction and mental health issues. Many people feel more vulnerable during this period and may need additional support. Rehab 4 Addiction offers a wealth of resources and information about addiction and mental health, which could be invaluable to those in need. They also provide a helpline that offers immediate assistance to those struggling with addiction in Lichfield, a service that could be life-saving for some of your readers. They also offer a comprehensive directory of treatment centres throughout the UK, making it easier for those in need to find help near them.
