Opening the Gate to Success


Parkgate Primary School

WAS Award

In September 2018 Parkgate  embarked on a an amazing journey that enables us to celebrate the fabulous work we have been doing here to support mental health and emotional wellbeing.

We wanted to create a whole school approach promoting emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole school community; this will be at the heart of the culture and ethos of our school.

All pupils, parents and school staff became part of this journey and contributed towards a healthy understanding of the importance of emotional health. Our hope was to build confidence where every person involved flourished in their thinking and learning around mental health.

There was a chance for us to be recognised and to celebrate all of the exceptional work that we have achieved within our school community, and a chance to celebrate our successes from over the last few years. We believe that this celebration of success will encourage more schools to adopt an approach that puts emotional wellbeing and mental health at the heart of what they do.

Our vision is to live in a community where children, families and staff are supported effectively to build on their strengths and to achieve their goals in life. We will continue to promote resilience and wellbeing to make a difference to people’s lives.

In April of 2019, we were awarded the nationally accredited 'Wellbeing Award for Schools' in recognition of our dedication and continued commitment to promoting emotional wellbeing and positive mental health across the whole school community.
