Mental Health & Wellbeing
At Aston Fence J & I School, the wellbeing and mental health of our pupils, staff and parents are at the forefront of our school’s vision of leading a mentally healthy school.
We are delighted to confirm that following verification, Aston Fence has been awarded the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools ‘School Mental Health Award’ – Silver Status. We are very proud of the work that continues to take place in school to support the well-being of all our pupils, families and staff and would like to thank Mrs Draycott for her hard work and dedication in this area too.
In addition to Mrs Draycott’s work, a number of our children benefit from sessions with Mrs Firth who is a qualified ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant).
