We’re delighted to announce that Tram House School have achieved the Wellbeing Award for Schools. This is a fantastic outcome for the school, learners, parents and staff and recognises the hard work that has gone into the process.
We started working towards the award in January 2021 to make positive changes in pupil and staff mental health. We are dedicated to improving the outcomes for all of our pupils and positive mental health is the corner stone of this. We are also proud to challenge, and we knew that this award would require us to reflect on our practice and improve it, to better equip ourselves to support our learners, staff and parents.
Throughout this process we have created a vision and a strategy that we can embed, grow and develop moving forward. We are very proud of the work that we have done to reduce stigma associated with mental health and mental health illness. We are particularly proud that there are a growing number of staff within Tram House, at all levels, who want to be a part of moving our mental health strategy forward.
Some of the feedback from our verifier: “I am very happy to verify the award for Tram House School. The whole school community is to be congratulated for the huge strides forward taken in a short period of time, under very challenging circumstances. As a school that is ‘proud to challenge’, there is an ethos of reflection, growth and an embracing of progress that has stood you in good stead for the challenges of the award. Congratulations: I wish you every future success.”

“Although we are now successfully verified, we know that our work on improving positive mental health does not stop here. We are dedicated to being reflective practitioners and will continue to work with our school community on how best to support our pupils, staff and parents in what continue to be difficult times.” Head of School, Emma Price
