Walton High is committed to supporting children with mental health conditions to ensure they are able to fully access the school’s curriculum and go on to live happy and fulfilled lives.

Through the school’s PSHE programme, students are made aware of how to live healthy lives to ensure both their physical and mental wellbeing.

Walton High can become aware of students with mental health issues in a number of different ways:

  • Students express a wish to access support themselves
  • Staff observations of concerning behaviour or through conversation with students
  • Parents contact Walton High for advice or to inform us of their child’s situation
  • External agencies are involved and contact Walton High to discuss the situation or in-school support

The support at Walton High includes:

Tutors

As Tutors have daily contact with their tutor group, it is sometimes appropriate for them to offer basic support. This may be informal chats during tutor time or offering a little time at the end of tutor time.  Tutors deliver the school’s PSHE programme which addresses issues surround mental health and wellbeing.

Pastoral Team

The Pastoral Team work closely with students displaying signs of anxiety or distress.  This may involve one to one sessions to talk through difficulties and identify strategies that students may find helpful.  Students presenting with these difficulties are brought to the attention of the Pastoral Director/Designated Safeguarding Lead and the Student and Family Support Advisor to ensure that their situation is being closely monitored and can be referred for further action when necessary. 

Educational Psychologist

The Trust’s Educational Psychologist provides support for students as well as advice and guidance for staff and parents.

Medical Room Supervisor

The Medical Room Supervisor is available, not only for physical injuries and illness but also supports when students present with mental health issues too.  This includes support for students presenting with symptoms of anxiety or panic by providing refocussing/breathing techniques.

Student and Family Support Advisor (SAFSA)

The Student and Family Support Advisor has a caseload of students that are seen on a one-to-one basis but also provides four weekly drop-ins for students to drop in for advice, support or guidance.

The SAFSA also works closely with the Pastoral Director to manage referrals and explore options for accessing external agencies where appropriate.

External Agencies

Specialist support services

  • CAMHS – moderate to severe mental health
  • Compass – substance misuse and early intervention
  • Brook – sexual health and advice services

Non-specialist support services

  • Children and Families Practice – holistic approach and family support
  • Service Six – tailored one-to-one support and group work dependent on need
  • Independent counselling service

There is usually a waiting list for all agencies, regardless of the work that they do.  Parents are always consulted prior to external agency involvement and where appropriate are also provided with a list of local services and advice numbers (see below).

When Walton High becomes aware of a young person presenting with self harm thoughts/ideation, intent or attempt, parents would normally be contacted to make them aware of the concerns so that appropriate action and support can be discussed. 

If a young person discloses that they have self harmed that could require medical intervention, parents are called to collect and asked to take their child straight to A&E.  The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is contacted and Multi Agency Referral Form (MARF) completed.

  • If a young person is experiencing suicidal ideation with intent, parents are contacted and CAMHS are also contacted for advice. The advice is usually to present at A&E for a mental health screening.
  • Where suicidal ideation with or without intent is present in a young person, parents are always advised that they can present at A&E to see a Mental Health worker from CAMHS at any time if they are concerned about the safety of their child. During office hours, they are advised to contact the CAMHS Referral and Advice line first as they might be advised to go straight to CAMHS.

Staff training

All staff are made aware of the support services available in school as well as who they can liaise with regards to any wellbeing or safeguarding concerns. They also receive safeguarding training that covers the management of sensitive information, the wellbeing of students and of themselves.

SoR LogoPresented by Walton High

31 January - 2 February 201   7.30pm

Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn gets thrown out of his bar band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite private elementary school, he exposes his students to the hard rock gods he idolises and emulates -- much to the consternation of the uptight principal. As he gets his privileged and precocious charges in touch with their inner rock 'n' roll animals, he imagines redemption at a local Battle of the Bands.

Join us for another stand-out Walton High Production, and be ready to feel the power of rock!
