At George Pindar School, we are continually working to support students in feeling safe and well at school and to enable them to flourish both within and outside of school.
Within school, Mr Murray and Miss Pickles lead the safeguarding and pastoral support alongside the Heads of Year and Form Tutors to offer guidance when needed to all of our students and their parents/carers where appropriate.
Mental health is a hugely important consideration for young adults in today’s society.
We are seeing an ‘epidemic’ rise in the number of teenagers being diagnosed with poor mental health. In order to address this, we want to provide students and parents/carers with as much information as possible, practical strategies and knowledge of where to go for additional support.
This downloadable pdf document looks at how to deal with stress and how to manage positive mental health. The tips on this page are of particular help when facing examinations but are equally applicable to daily life.
If you need any help or support, please talk to a member of staff.
