Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health

Are you interested in learning more about how to support your child’s emotional wellbeing?  Please look at our range of parent webinars delivered by Creative Education that you can sign up to if your child attends one of our WMAT schools:


At FHES, the wellbeing of our school community is paramount. We promote physical wellness and positive mental health as we know this helps us all to thrive. 

During their time with us, we want to equip our young people with the tools to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. We achieve this through our strong sense of community, PSHE curriculum, pastoral support, intervention, extensive range of extra-curricular activities and by keeping wellbeing as a top priority.

At FHES, we are fortunate to work with Eikon who developed the 'Head Smart Programme' to train students to promote wellbeing through becoming Wellbeing Ambassadors. Our Wellbeing Ambassadors educate other students on what wellbeing is, the fact that you can improve it and what ways there are to improve it. This is done through presentations, conversations and events/publicity around the school. Wellbeing Ambassadors are not 121 mentors or mental health experts but we have these, if needed. 

All students will go through highs and lows in their teenage years so we have the following additional support in school;

  • Emotional Literacy Support Mentoring (ELMS)
  • Drawing and Talking sessions
  • Eikon (Early Intervention Coordinator, Youth Specialist and Children's Well-being Practitioner).
  • Targeted group work on themes such as self-esteem and anxiety 
  • CBT with our Primary Mental Health Workers

When appropriate, we will also involve external professionals and organisations such as our Educational Psychologist or CAMHS. 

If you have any concerns about your child’s emotional wellbeing or mental health, please contact their form tutor who will arrange support. 

We hope you find the resources on this page useful. If you have any questions, please contact the following staff;

Miss Rachel Potter (Well-being Coordinator at FHES) rpotter@fhes.org.uk

Ms Zara Wright (Emotional Well-being and Mental Health Lead for WMAT) zwright@fhes.org.uk
