Learning at BVGA
It is important that we promote good mental wellbeing for all pupils including providing a structured school environment with clear expectations. This is paired with an individualised graduated response when the behavioural issues might be a result of educational, mental health, other needs or vulnerabilities. We are committed to supporting all pupils to achieve excellent educational outcomes, and strive to help pupil overcome any barriers that may prevent such achievement.
The academy will ensure that our clear response systems and processes used to identify possible mental health problems are followed, including routes to escalate for external support.
Belle Vue Girls' Academy is working in partnership with Place2Be, a children's mental health charity with over 25 years' experience working with pupils and families. Place2Be provide mental health support in schools through one-to-one and group counselling using tried and tested methods backed by research.
Our Place2Be Mental Health Practitioner is Diane Towns, who is based in school 3 days a week.
All students are offered the opportunity to speak to Diane about any worries or concerns they may have. Please read this letter that explains the service.
