East Barnet School was delighted to be awarded the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools ‘School Mental Health Award’ at Silver Level in March 2020. The school was recognised by the Lead Coach as having a warm and nurturing environment where staff and students are well supported.
Key areas that were praised included:
The school is leading on a wide variety of mental health partnerships in the area. They are in a CPD hub with three other local secondary schools. EBS has shared it’s good practice and opened it’s doors to others to visit the school. Leaders of mental health and wellbeing have visited the other schools to advise them on how to improve. The school is continuing to develop key partnerships within and beyond the borough such as the Resilience School Programme and has linked with outside agencies such as iHeart, Papyrus, the Autism Champion Programme and Feminista.
In February 2023, we were awarded the ‘Barnet’s Resilient Schools (RS) Programme’ which seeks to promote whole school awareness of wellbeing, mental health, and resilience.
It takes a whole-school approach to promote and build resilience in schools and address mental health concerns early on. Resilience in schools is seen when students, parents/carers and staff have a greater ability to “bounce back’’ when faced with difficulties to achieve positive outcomes.
