Emotionally Healthy Schools
As part of our SEND provision North Gosforth Academy has completed an Emotionally Healthy School audit and we are pleased that we came out strongly in most areas and mental health is now one of the key priorities for the school.
We are part of the roll out of Kooth which is an online service helping young people with any issues or concerns they may have. Having qualified counsellors, information and advice for our young people to access online is an innovative way to make support more easily available. Available until 10pm each night, 365 days per year, it provides a much needed out of hours service for advice and emotional support.
If you are concerned about the mental health of a student, please contact the academy and we will be able to signpost appropriate services to support the student.
