Providing an attachment friendly community which fosters warmth with high boundaries so that all can achieve to their full potential.
At Hope School we are committed to promoting and protecting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health. We are pleased to announce we are the proud owners of The Wellbeing Award for School. The award was achieved in January 2019 and highlights the commitment of all in our community in ensuring the best for everybody's wellbeing and mental health.
'A strength is the clear strategic vision, direction and effective planning to promote EMHWB. It’s very much a whole-school approach, promoted by an experienced Head teacher and dedicated school staff and Governing Body. This is a courageous school that puts each child, individually at the centre of focus from their first becoming assigned to the school. An individual approach ensures therapies, curriculum and skills form the target for progress. There are a wide variety of initiatives and activities to support pupils and staff development.'
'The very successful approach to promote Emotional and Mental Health and Wellbeing deserves to be shared more widely so that other schools can learn from this' ( WAS verifier report January 2019).
