At the Forge Trust we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, their families, and our staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
At The Forest View Academy we have a three tiered approach to supporting the mental health and well-being of our pupils: –
Lead Staff Members:
Mrs Ruth Harrison – Principal
Mrs Vanessa Dillon – Safeguarding and Pastoral Lead
Should you need any help or advice regarding issues around mental health and well-being please do not hesitate to contact us at school.
If children are still struggling to manage their feelings and emotions despite accessing support in school, we can refer to other support agencies such as; CAMHS and the Healthy Families Team.
We can assess their emotional behaviour using an assessment called The Boxall Profile.
If you have any worries about your child’s emotional well-being and mental health, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff in school
