mental health and wellbeing


The Ulceby Team are passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people and all stakeholders. We want all members of our community to thrive, and have good mental health, despite any adverse challenges. We believe in teamwork; working with each other, with teachers and colleagues across the school, with the wider school community and most importantly with the young people in our school. We act with determination. Whatever issues our pupils, their families, the school, our staff team or the community face, we always support, react and pull together. We are not passive players in young people and stakeholders’ lives but active participants who can and do make a real difference. These reflect the school’s vision and core values of Respect, Hope, Resilience and Curiosity

Why it is important?

Mental Health matters. Taking care of our mental health aids in our resilience and recovery from anything that happens. Anyone can have a bad day, but it doesn’t mean that it’s a bad life. How we respond to it and take care of our mental health is what’s important. Mental Health is important at every stage of our lives. It encompasses our overall wellbeing and affects our lives in many ways.

How do we support children in school?

We have a highly skilled team of staff who can support all stakeholders with their mental health and well-being and where necessary we can refer to external services who can support children and families with bespoke needs.

Our Mental Health Lead and Pastoral Manager is Mrs Barrass, she can support children with the following:

· Worries and concerns (home/school)

· Separation issues-family breakdown

· Friendship issues

· Social skills

· Self esteem/confidence building

· Behaviour

· Bereavement and loss

· Emotional regulation

What support looks like:

Access to pastoral support in school, can be 1:1, group work, regular or occasional check ins.

We also offer a range of clubs and enrichment, including Calm club at lunchtime where children can take part in structured play, focused on well being.
