Focus on Mental Wellbeing

Mental wellbeing is at the top of the agenda at Ibstock College, where students are taking part in a school-wide survey.

All students have been asked to give their views on the measures already in place to support their mental wellbeing and to suggest what else they would like to see.

The survey is part of the college's partnership with the Worth-it Project, a scheme which supports mental wellbeing services in schools.

Team members from the Worth-it Project will also meet with student House Captains to talk about ICC's commitment to mental wellbeing and to discuss possible new initiatives.

Worth-it representatives will complete their overview by talking to staff, senior leaders and governors.

Sue Webster, pastoral manager at ICC, said: "With help from the Worth-it Project, we are hoping to identify ways in which we can be even more effective in raising the profile of mental wellbeing. We hope that students will give us some ideas on how we can help them.

"Mental wellbeing is about students managing their friendships, their school and home lives, knowing where to go for help and dealing with difficult situations when they arise. It is about being resilient."

ICC already offers lots of support for students who need it, including easy access to pastoral staff and good communication with parents and carers.

There is also a successful peer mentoring scheme, involving more than 20 Year 7 students each year, who are paired with Year 9 students to help them settle into college life.
