Coordinated and financed by The Royal Foundation as part of the Heads Together campaign, Mentally Healthy Schools has been designed to help every primary school in England to better support their pupil’s mental well-being and will give teachers and staff the clarity and practical resources they need to support pupils.

With 1 in 10 children experiencing a mental health issue before they turn 11, improving well-being in junior schools is critical. ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ will be free and easy to use the website for schools, drawing together reliable and practical resources to improve awareness, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils’ mental health.

AT Roe Green Junior School, The Duchess of Cambridge was greeted by the pupils singing and waving Heads Together flags.

Catherine met teachers, pupils & representatives from charity partners about the importance of Mentally Healthy Schools, how it works, and the difference it will make to the well-being of children in junior schools across the country.

The Duchess attended a lesson in Year 3 class where their teacher is using resources from the website to make rose-tinted glasses with the pupils. The activity is designed to help children think more positively about their life & how this, in turn, makes them more resilient.

Speaking at the launch program Catherine remarked,” The role of teachers is absolutely vital. You are uniquely placed to help children speak about their mental and emotional challenges and direct parents and carers to the right support. My own commitment is to the youngest and most vulnerable in their early years – babies, toddlers and primary school-age pupils – and to supporting those who care for them, including teachers. The ultimate goal is that no primary school teacher, anywhere in the country, should in future have to wonder where to turn when it comes to the wellbeing of children in their care.
