Supporting children and young people with mental health conditions

Walton High is committed to supporting children with mental health conditions to ensure they are able to fully access the school’s curriculum and go on to live happy and fulfilled lives.

Through the school’s PSHE programme, students are made aware of how to live healthy lives to ensure both their physical and mental wellbeing.

Walton High can become aware of students with mental health issues in a number of different ways:

  • students express a wish to access support themselves
  • staff observations of concerning behaviour or through conversation with students
  • parents contact Walton High for advice or to inform us of their child’s situation
  • external agencies are involved and contact Walton High to discuss the situation or in-school support
