Mental health and wellbeing

Trafford's Graduated Approach to SEMH 

The SEND Code of Practice states:

6.32 - Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which manifest themselves in many ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated as well as displaying challenging disruptive or disturbing behaviour.

These behaviours may reflect underlying mental health difficulties such as anxiety or depression, self-harming, substance misuse, eating disorders or physical symptoms that are medically unexplained. Other children and young people may have disorders such as attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder or attachment disorder. 

Mental Health Day 2023

This year's theme for mental health day is 'mental health is a universal right.' We looked at this theme together in a whole school assembly to learn more about how we can take action to take care of our own mental health.
