Stradbroke'sHealthy Minds' Champions
The purpose of the Healthy Minds’ Champions group is to ensure that young people’s voices are heard and integrated into any measures that the school implements to support mental health. There will be one Healthy Minds Champion in each KS2 class. The children will be trained by an external Healthy Minds Leader and school staff who will help the children to develop their own ideas.
As a group, the Champions will explore what is working in school to support positive mental health and consider what we can develop further. They will lead on implementing any changes across the whole school that will be planned and discussed with the external Healthy Minds Leader and supporting school staff.
The website will be updated throughout the year to showcase the work that is taking place!
During the autumn term, the newly appointed Healthy Minds’ Champions met with our external Healthy Minds leader and supporting school staff.
The children discussed their understanding of positive mental health and what their role meant to them. They thought about what they would like to achieve during their time in the role and began gathering ideas. Finally, They shared positive experiences of when someone has been there for them in preparation for their whole school assembly.
