Mental Health

We take a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing, including support for school leaders and safeguarding leads, and specialist one-to-one provision for our students.

Students are more likely to flourish if they are physically and mentally healthy, equipped with knowledge to help them make informed choices, and provided with opportunities that not only build character, but give them moments of joy, belonging and purpose.

Our schools provide a calm and purposeful learning environment in which students achieve well and feel safe. This is underpinned by our commitment to ‘knowing every child’ and recognising and celebrating their successes.

From supporting school leaders and safeguarding leads with training so they can identify issues as early as possible, to specialist one-to-one provision with partner organisations, Ark takes a whole-school approach to mental health.
