Mental Health & Wellbeing
Prospect Hill Junior School Statement of Mental Health and Wellbeing Intent
Prospect Hill Junior School is passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people. We believe in positive teamwork and identify ourselves as ‘Team Prospect’; working with each other, with colleagues across the school, with the wider school community and most importantly with the young people and families in our school. We act with determination and resilience. Whatever issues our students, their families, the school, our team or the community face, we always support, react and pull together. Finally, we are committed to making a difference; we are not passive players in young people’s lives but active participants who can and do make a real difference. These are a reflection of the school’s curriculum intent statement and core values, to value and respect everyone in our school, in our community, and globally
Our moral purpose can therefore be summarised below -
