Pictured with Gemma Hunt, Deputy Head Teacher and Gavin Ball, (former) Executive Head Teacher, is John Grundy, Senior Liaison Worker for the SHARE Project, presenting the SHARE Certificate for the school’s work with the SHARE Project last academic year.

The Kings of Wessex Academy worked closely with the SHARE Project last academic year. Project Workers Gail and Claire worked closely with Gemma Hunt in promoting a whole school approach to Mental Health and promoting positive emotional wellbeing. Claire and Gail helped to facilitate student and staff wellbeing boards in the school, held drop in sessions for students around exam stress, and held assemblies for the whole school raising awareness of mental health.

John Grundy commented that: "It was great this morning to hear about the work Kings Academy continues to do around raising awareness of mental health and supporting positive emotional well-being. Factors such as their wellbeing room for students to be signposted to the right support in school is fundamental in raising mental health awareness and building positive emotional wellbeing in schools. We look forward to our continued work this year.’
