Wellbeing Award for Schools

"school has had a far-reaching effect on the whole school community"

We believe that as a school we have a critical role in supporting pupils to make healthy lifestyle choices and to understand consequences on lifelong health and wellbeing.

The link between health and wellbeing and positive academic performance is well researched:

  • Evidence shows that mental health and wellbeing programmes in schools, can lead to significant improvements in children’s mental health, and social and emotional skills.
  • The Department for Education has found that, on average, children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social and school wellbeing, had higher levels of academic achievement and were more engaged in schools.

Based on this research, and to celebrate how well St. Thomas of Canterbury support the wellbeing of everyone involved in our school, we had the WAS Wellbeing and Mental Health Award for Schools verified.
