Student wellbeing

Here at Thomas Estley, we value the health, wellbeing and inclusion of all our students and staff.

We are excited to be working towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools, administered by Award Place, in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau.


Mental Health and Wellbeing has always been a central consideration within the school and within the wider community. 

We have a number of different processes to help students who feel that they may need to talk to someone about their mental health or get  support for someone they are concerned about.

  • - allows pupils to send an email to the pastoral team
  • Student counsellor - referals made through student Team Leader or Student Wellbeing Manager, Miss Cooper
  • Mental Health first aid trained members of staff: Miss Plumb, Miss Cooper, Miss Sinclair, Miss Masters
  • Students are encouraged also to approach any member of staff that they feel confident talking to. Their tutor is a paint point of contact for all our young      people.
  • All staff have been trained in what to do should a student approach them with concerns about their mental health or that of a friend.
  • Student Wellbeing Ambassadors
  • Student Wellbeing Zone - Support base open at break and lunchtimes for students      who need a quiet, safe space or to request support
  • School nurse - referrals made through student Team Leader or Student Wellbeing Manager

As a school we take the mental health and wellbeing of our young people seriously, therefore we recommend that you contact your GP if you have any ongoing concerns about your child.

We at Thomas Estley are proud to be an inclusive school and to celebrate and support diversity.
