St Philip’s School received the AcSEED Award accreditation

We are delighted to announce that St Philip’s have been awarded the AcSEED accreditation.  The AcSEED Award is a quality assurance mark presented to schools that have made a substantial effort to support the mental health of their students.

Charlotte Gatherer, founder of The AcSEED Initiative says “AcSEED promotes adoption of best practices in supporting the emotional wellbeing and mental health of young people in schools and colleges, and provides recognition for organisations that satisfy the AcSEED criteria for wellbeing support”

“The concept was founded by young people with direct personal experience of mental illness at a young age. Their combined experiences have been used to identify and recommend a range of best practices that could have helped significantly in identifying and supporting their emerging emotional difficulties during school years. They were unanimous in viewing school as a pivotal environment that significantly influenced their emotional development, and in the belief that targeted intervention within this educational and social framework could have made a significant difference in helping to contain and manage their mental health vulnerabilities” (AcSEED website01/05/18)

Nick Gatherer, AcSEED Operations said “The AcSEED assessment team were impressed by the comprehensive wellbeing support provided by St Philip’s School, by the wide range of mental health and wellbeing information and training available, and by their tailoring of wellbeing provisions and services to meet the specific needs of their pupils. We are therefore delighted to announce that St Philip’s School has been accredited with The AcSEED Award”

Debbie Battle, WEST lead said “We will continue to do everything we can to support our young people through any emotional difficulties they may encounter.”

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
