Southgate goes for a Wellbeing
What is the Wellbeing Award?
"The Wellbeing Award is about being kind to each other,
giving everyone a hand and helping with any issues."

Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Strategy
Our vision is to offer a safe nurturing school where we always see the best in people and believe in them. We celebrate difference, take great joy in our young people and seek to discover and develop their unique potential.
The Pupil Wellbeing Team Aims:
Extend and enhance our provision for all pupils' emotional health and wellbeing by developing awareness and skills to meet the increasingly complex and high level of social, emotional and mental health needs of pupils within our cohort.
The Staff Wellbeing Team Aims:
Create an environment where staff feel that they are encouraged to be open about how they are feeling, where they feel comfortable talking about their own emotional wellbeing and mental health and feel that they will be listened to and supported.
The Family Wellbeing Team Aims:
Become a community hub for parents and carers, so that they can support each other and request or access support for their child's mental health and emotional wellbeing through school.
At Southgate School we believe that emotional wellbeing and mental health of pupils, staff and families is a shared responsibility of the whole school community.
We are going for a Wellbeing Award which means we are looking at how well we deal with everyone within our school community, and what we can improve. At the end of this year, we hope to be properly recognised for the way we set out to support everyone involved with our school, and to do it better!
