ICPS Mental Health

Promoting positive mental health and well-being of the children in our care is central to our school. In addition to all staff being trained in the G.R.E.A.T D.R.E.A.M. of Action for Happiness, key members of staff are Mental Health First Aiders. Each week the whole Prep School have a well-being walk and staff are always monitoring the moods and interactions of individual children. Working closely with parents and outside agencies such as School Counsellors, The Priory in Southgate and Art Therapies for Children, as a school we facilitate intervention where necessary, although prevention is aim. To this end we are developing a programme of parental sessions on promoting positive mental health and workshops for specific areas of interest.
