Well-being and Mental Health
Welcome to the Marriotts Well-being and Mental Health homepage. Here you will find information and support for various challenges both students and parents may face. We hope you will find this information useful.At Marriotts School, we aim to ensuring that all students are aware of the 5 ways to wellbeing, feel supported and are aware of any risks and keep themselves safe.
We recognise that it is important that our students know how to care for themselves both mentally and physically, whilst they also develop personal traits and virtues that will motivate and guide our students to flourish in society with confidence and resilience.
We will enlighten students so that they behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others. We want our students to develop so that they possess confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally and physically healthy.
We build our school ethos of Aim high, work hard and be kind, into day to day life at school to help students to have good understanding of their mental health, wellbeing and ways to support them.
