Mental Health and Wellbeing 

"Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community."  (World Health Organisation) 


We take the mental health and wellbeing of our Smithills family very seriously. Our role is to:


  • Create an environment that supports learning, promoting the health and wellbeing of members of the Smithills family

  • Ensure that we all feel safe and supported, and build resilience to life’s challenges. 

  • Build relationships with our pupils that allows them to trust and talk openly with adults about their problems

If you are concerned about the mental health or wellbeing of your child please feel free to contact the school, we have an excellent Pastoral team that can assist you. 


“This is a truly inclusive school where every pupil is valued. The school provides excellent pastoral support for its most vulnerable pupils. Leaders have created a culture in which all are given the chance to be successful.”  Ofsted June 2018
