MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS:
Welshpool High School is proud to be one of nine schools within Wales who are a pilot school within the Time to Change Wales (TTCW) – Young Person’s Programme. The project aims to improve and support the mental health and wellbeing of young people in school communities throughout Wales.
As a school we have pledged to show that we are committed to the TTCW programme to support the development of a wider project to change the way young people, parents and teachers think and act about mental health across Wales.
Pupils in years 9, 10, 11, 12 & 13 have completed the following:
- a short survey to establish our pupil’s initial knowledge/perception of mental health
- a 50min mental health workshop delivered by a TTCW champion
- shortly after the workshop a second survey is then completed that will compare any progression in their knowledge surrounding mental health
Welshpool High School is fully committed to engaging with Time to Change Wales so that we can promote and share good practice with our staff, pupils and parents regarding mental health. We aim to provide support and embed an improved attitude towards mental health by embracing a whole school approach.

Welshpool High School is committed to monitoring the Health and Wellbeing of all pupils. Assemblies, form tutor time and PSE lessons all promote Health and Wellbeing. Surveys completed annually also feed into our reflective practice and they help us i mprove and support the Mental Health and Wellbeing of young people in our school.
