Mental Health Awareness at Windmill Hill School

Having good mental health is the foundation for learning. At Windmill Hill School we look at the needs of each child and work to support them.

Each year we hold a Mental Health Awareness Day when students and staff experience both fun activities and learn about strategies for managing our mental health.

It is through staff working to meet student needs, and students understanding their role in the learning process, that together we can ensure students at Windmill Hill School have the best opportunity to learn and make progress.

Students receive additional support through the varied and wide-ranging alternative curriculum and through therapies.
