At INSPIRE we are committed to promoting positive mental health and emotional wellbeing to all students, their families and members of staff and governors. Our open culture allows students’ voices to be heard, and through the use of effective policies and procedures we ensure a safe and supportive environment for all affected – both directly and indirectly – by mental health issues.
We have developed a Trust wide policy which is a guide for all staff – including non-teaching and governors – outlining INSPIRE’s approach to promoting mental health and emotional wellbeing.
