Here at Outwood Grange Academies Trust, we put students first to raise standards and transform lives. Creating a supportive environment where our students feel happy and able to flourish underpins everything we do.

We have created a new website which provides a comprehensive range of services for our students and parents to access to support them and their mental wellbeing. To visit, please click on the link below:

We all have times when we have low Mental Wellbeing, where we feel stressed, upset or find it difficult to cope.

There are some common life events that may affect your Mental Wellbeing:

  • Loss or bereavement.
  • Loneliness.
  • Relationship problems.
  • Issues at school.
  • Worries about money.

Everyone deserves to feel good and there are steps you can take to maintain and improve your Mental Wellbeing:

  • Build positive relationships.
  • Take time for yourself.
  • Look after your mental health.
  • Look after your physical health.

What can you do in school to gain Mental Wellbeing?

  • Be open and talk about your feelings with your friends.
  • Associate yourself with positive people.
  • Join an enrichment club.
  • Speak to a member of staff.
  • Talk to your Learning Manager.
  • Tell the Inclusion Team.
  • Get involved with the Peer Mentors.
  • Get physically active (a Health body and mind are closely linked).

Children First Hubs offer a range of services for families in the Doncaster and can provide coordinated support to families experiencing at least two of the following issues:

• School attendance problems
• Have a child who needs help
• Domestic abuse
• Employment and debt problems
• Health problems
• Crime and Anti-social behaviour problems

If you are having issues with any of the above or any other similar problems, getting support as soon as possible could be really important.

Children First Hubs can offer short term coordinated packages of support (outcome focused interventions) where a need has been identified by the lead professional, for example, parenting support. The Hubs can also provide support to practitioners to develop their skills around being the lead professional.
