Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing

Claverham Community College is delighted to be part of an exciting new Mental Health First Aid teacher training and pupil “Mind Fitness” programme.

Staff at Claverham Community College have been trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid and all students will begin the process of a “Mind Fitness” workshops in PSHE and Tutor lessons. The College is establishing a Mental Health Committee made up of teaching and support staff as well as students. It is envisaged that this Committee will implement initiatives that encourage openness about mental health and mental health problems and that students make use of the trained members of staff and approach them if they are worried themselves or about somebody else.

At Claverham Community College, we believe in promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing. Prioritising the wellbeing of students and staff ensures that outstanding teaching and learning can take place, and that the school is a community where everyone feels able to thrive.


Claverham Community College students work with a number of role models and organisations who represent wider society. We work collaboratively with a range of national and international groups – StonewallYoung Minds and Time to Change to name but a few. Students benefit enormously from the involvement of these organisations and people.
