Emotionally Friendly School
Moorside High School is currently in the process of applying and working towards the Bronze Emotionally Friendly School Accreditation.
The Emotionally Friendly Schools (EFS) programme is a flexible, whole-school approach to improving children's mental health and well-being. The accreditation focuses on four key areas:
- Staff Wellbeing and School Ethos
- Classroom Practice
- Assessing Children's Needs
- Supporting Individual Children
One of our core values, at Moorside High School, is ‘Consideration’. We want all our community to be considerate and to support the wellbeing of both staff and students. We aim to ensure that all students are happy, healthy, and able to cope with everything that life may throw at them. We promote and teach all students to be resilient, confident, and, most of all, be socially responsible.
By adopting a whole school approach, we can ensure that wellbeing is central to everything that we do.
Our EFS Champions at school are Mrs F Henn, Mrs Brickell and Mrs H Richardson.
We also have our ‘Wellbeing Staff Champion’, Mr A Howson.
We are looking forward to implementing more interventions and whole school strategies to ensure wellbeing is at the heart of all we do.
