We are a CAMHS Accelerator School

CAHMS are the Contact, the charity for families with disabled children. We support families, bring families together and help families take action for others. “The Accelerator Schools project is a joint health and education initiative to identify, celebrate and share best practice with regards to promoting positive mental health in young people.

CAMHS provide direct support into schools, providing early intervention for children with low-level/emerging anxiety, low mood, phobias and related challenges. Support can be delivered through 1:1 sessions with one of our practitioners, group-work or work with parents/carers. The team also deliver workshops and assemblies, in partnership with other CAMHS services, around general wellbeing and resilience.

LGBT Support

As a school, we are determined to share a positive and celebratory message regarding LGBT+ people both within our community and on a worldwide basis. We aim to convey this message in a myriad of ways: via our lesson plans, policies, assemblies, newsletters, displays, student voice and in our governors’ meetings, to name but a few. We also seek to challenge and eradicate any discrimination or LGBTphobia displayed in our school.
