Emotional Wellbeing & Mental Health

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 1:1 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 (School's Youth Support Practitioner and Emotional Well-being Practitioner).
  • Targeted group work on themes such as self-esteem and anxiety

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.  If your child is experimenting with their gender identity and you would like to discuss this, please email Mr Jones on bjones@fhes.org.uk. 

We hope you find the resources on this page useful. If you have any questions, please contact your child's Tutor.
