Wellbeing Family Groups
In April 2019, Parkgate were awarded the 'Wellbeing Award for Schools' in recognition of the dedication and commitment to developing positive mental health.
Well - being
"the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy"
At Parkgate we are committed to improving and maintaining a positive wellbeing for everybody in our community. As a school, we understand the pivotal role that we can play in ensuring that mental health is 'everyone's business'.
At Parkgate we strive to create an environment which signposts and celebrates excellent mental health support with a high level of understanding leading to targeted and timely intervention for those individuals that need it. We have worked hard over the years to develop a culture with the children at the heart of everything we do. With the extra media attention and stories in the news around Wellbeing, we are committed to sharing our successes and further developing our commitment to ensuring everybody in our community has access to support them in finding a sense of comfortableness, healthiness and happiness.
“The single biggest predictor of success in adult life is wellbeing in childhood”
