Welcome to our Wellbeing section

We at Gosfield School aim to always provide a safe and supportive environment for our students to learn in. We keep everyone’s emotional and physical wellbeing at the forefront of our actions; encouraging a culture in which mental health and wellbeing is talked about openly.  

How we support mental health and wellbeing at Gosfield School

Mental health is embedded in our curriculum within PSHEE sessions and is openly discussed in assemblies.

We hold ‘Place to Be’ sessions where pupils can come and engage in some calming activities, engage with friends and speak to a member of staff. Place to Be in Prep School is run at break times and in Senior School is available in Learning Support at lunchtimes.

We can also access in house or external support to meet students’ specific emotional needs. If you wish to discuss this further, please contact the school. Please see below some helpful resources covering a range of mental health and wellbeing needs.
