Castle View School, part of Zenith Multi Academy Trust, is elated to announce their most recent accreditation; obtaining the Wellbeing Award for Schools from Optimus Education.
This highlights Castle View as leaders of wellbeing and mental health nationally. They are one of the very few to obtain this award across Essex. Staff at the school have been working relentlessly to improve and continue to deliver pastoral care for the emotional and social needs of their students as well as the physical and academic needs.
The school has earned the award by implementing strategies of support for mental health such as counselling, kids life coaching, yoga sessions, group workshops on confidence and resilience, mindfulness, meditation, student leadership wellbeing teams, staff training, support from outside agencies.
Student Support Officers and Safeguarding Teams were recognised alongside the SEND departments, pastoral programmes and wellbeing coordinators as being “exceptional.”
The report concluded that the school “far exceeded the expectations of the award.”
