We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Our mental health is how we’re feeling inside, or how we are emotionally. Our mental health impacts how we think, feel, react and behave.

Our Vision At Highfield Littleport Academy, we believe that;

  • emotional wellbeing and mental health is of central importance and fundamental to our lives
  • there shouldn’t be fear or stigma around mental health
  • that everybody within our school community should have an understanding and awareness of mental health
  • everyone is entitled to the support that they need so that they can become the best, healthiest version of themselves
  • having a mentally healthy community is about working together through challenges and sharing celebrations ensuring everyone feels supported, heard, accepted, valued and empowered
  • individuals thrive in a mentally healthy environment and this is what we want to create for our school community

Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health

Emotional wellbeing is a continuum and we will all experience episodes of poor emotional health and wellbeing during our lives. We believe that everyone at Highfield Littleport Academy has a responsibility to promote positive mental health and to understand about protective and risk factors for mental health. All staff and governors should have the skills to look out for any early warning signs of mental health problems and ensure that pupils and other staff members with mental health needs get early intervention and the support they need.
