Wellbeing Award for Schools
At Haslam Park we feel very passionate about the mental well-being of all our staff, children and our school community. We can't wait to show you our excellent pastoral care offered to our children and team.
Haslam Park has been awarded the Wellbeing Award for Schools, highlighting the excellent pastoral care offered to pupils and staff at Haslam Park.
Provided by Optimus Education, the Wellbeing Award for Schools recognises the work that we do in supporting the wellbeing of the school community and in promoting the understanding about mental health issues to reduce the stigma surrounding them in wider society.
The award, developed in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau (NCB), focuses on ensuring that effective practices and provisions are in place to support and promote emotional wellbeing and mental health. The aim is to change the long-term culture of schools, embedding an ethos where mental health is regarded as the responsibility of all.
The report noted that the school is committed to promoting a positive, supportive culture amongst the Haslam Park Community.

This award promotes positive social and emotional well-being, mental health and wellness for pupils and staff in our school. We can't wait to share our journey with you. We are super excited to share our journey with you.
Due to Covid 19 - mental well-being, self isolating, bereavement and a lack of opportunities are all impacting on children's and adults mental health. We believe as a school now more than ever is a time to highlight our brilliant work we do.
'To achieve this vision, NCB advocates the use of a ‘whole-school approach’ where all aspects of the school experience are harnessed to promote the emotional wellbeing and mental health of pupils and staff. It is an approach where emotional wellbeing and mental health is everybody’s business.' (National Children's Bureau - Award Place 2020)
