Wellbeing and Healthy Minds

At Lynn Grove Academy we strive to ensure all students are supported, so they are able to achieve their full potential. We support students’ wellbeing and healthy minds through both our curriculum and pastoral support. This support allows the school as a whole and each individual classroom to be a safe space where students feel supported and understood.

It is vitally important that children and young adults are encouraged and supported to look after their mental health and wellbeing. We have shared some resources, links and guidance below from a range of mental health organisations offering advice in many different areas.
