At Roundwood Park we understand the current demands that our students are facing, whilst transitioning into young adulthood in an evolving world.
As a school we value the importance of wellbeing, and recognise the need for differing tiers of mental health support, which in turn, allows our students to thrive and build healthy relationships, develop resilience and reach their academic potential. We offer a safe and secure environment, where all are welcome to seek help and talk openly about their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
- To promote positive mental health and wellbeing throughout our school community in order to reduce stigma and develop a culture of acceptance and understanding.
- To identify student who may be starting to struggle with their mental health and providing early help and signposting to wellbeing services.
- To respond to all student in need with direct support through our pastoral teams and inclusion teams with referral to specialist services as and when required.
The Five Ways to Wellbeing
At RPS we follow the framework of The Five Ways to Wellbeing, a Hertfordshire supported campaign designed to guide individuals to help manage their own wellbeing by working through a series of self-help activities. Throughout RPS we explore this self-help tool in form times and assemblies and encourage our students to look after their own wellbeing and embed these activities into their daily routine.
