The latest episode of Thrive’s Connected podcast celebrates World Mental Health Day, which takes place on October 10. In this episode, we focus on Rose Lane Primary School, in East London, which is a Thrive School of Excellence for mental health. Katie Parks, the school’s Counsellor, Mental Health Lead and Thrive Lead explains how mental wellbeing unlocks attendance and attainment and how the right structures, including having a Designated Mental Health Lead, can make the difference in terms of supporting pupils.
“If you don’t address the wellbeing needs of pupils, they won’t feel safe and they will struggle to learn,” she said.
