What is Sandwell?
St Mark’s Primary School are pleased to share that we have been awarded the Sandwell Charter Mark. This is in recognition of our commitment to developing a whole school approach to well-being and mental health for pupils, staff and parents. Our aim is to give everyone member of our school community a voice.
The Charter Mark criterion is underpinned by the eight principles that have been identified by BCP to be important to emotional health and well- being: Promoting children and young people's emotional health and wellbeing: A whole school approach.
The project addresses the well-being and mental health of all those in the school community (parents, staff, and pupils) and understands that everyone, at some point in their life, will have some difficulties around mental health and will need support from others.
The team of Educational psychologists for BCP supported our training and development as we created an action plan based on how we wished to develop as school community. Through a series of audits, staff surveys, pupils and parent voice, we have been able to identify how we can have a positive impact on well-being in our school community.
We are proud that this will be an on-going process to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring we support and develop mental health and well-being strategies that support pupil, parents and staff within our community underpinned by our Christian values at St Mark’s.
