We are committed to promoting an environment where our students can support not only their own emotional health and wellbeing, but also that of those around them. This is done in many ways across the whole school through PD lessons, form times discussions, and pastoral support. Students learn that it is good to talk about how they are feeling and how they can respond if someone talks to them about something that they are worried about. This encompasses teaching students how to support their own emotional health and wellbeing through being active and eating healthily and provides guidance of how to seek help if necessary. 

At Telford Priory we believe that helping our students stay healthy by supporting their Emotional Health and Wellbeing is vitally important. We recognise that there are enormous challenges for everyone at the moment and have therefore created a page to guide our students and families to seek support. 

Below are links that may be useful to help with a wide range of scenarios, some websites then link into many other sources of information and support. This is not an exhaustive list as there are many other interesting sources of guidance on the internet, but these are a good starting point if you feel you need to seek advice or assistance during this time. 

If you have a concern regarding your son or daughter’s mental health please contact school by email, either through your son or daughter’s head of year, or the safeguarding team. Email:   

If your concern happens out of school hours, and is urgent (usually that the young person is at imminent risk to themselves or others) then please try to make an appointment with your GP and request an urgent referral to BeeU.
