Wellbeing at CCS

Our new wellbeing framework brings together six themes that help promote and develop emotional wellbeing and mental health at CCS.

As part of our work on the Wellbeing Award for Schools, we reviewed how we promote and support wellbeing at Caroline Chisholm School.  This included: 

  • Student groups developing ideas and initiatives 

  • Staff Forum identifying issues and suggestions about staff wellbeing 

  • Surveys with staff, students and parents/carers to rate us on a range of wellbeing-related criteria 

  • Optimus Education evaluating and sharing recommendations from schools best practice.  

This review made clear that, while we had lots of initiatives and support services, there were opportunities to improve.  The team is launching numerous initiatives in 2023-24, including: 

  • Wellbeing mascot designed by our student competition winner 

  • Prayer and well-being spaces for students

  • Wellbeing Mentor scheme 

  • Mental health awareness events 

  • Extend the support we get from NHS Mental Health Support Team 

  • Staff wellbeing charter 

  • New wellbeing website area (the one you’re reading right now) 

Information on these initiatives will be shared on our website and social media posts throughout the year. 

Where to next?
