Trailblazers/Young Minds Matter Mental Health Support

We are delighted that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new, national programme to help make mental health support for children and young people more available when they need it. 


We are one of 72 schools from Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean to work with the NHS in Gloucestershire to introduce Mental Health Support Teams into schools.   Valuable support is being provided to identified pupils to help them with the ups and downs of life, with issues such as anxiety, friendship, exam stress and challenging behaviour. 

This may involve group work and/or individual, one-to-one support, either at school or elsewhere.  Where appropriate, the Mental Health Support Team will also link up with the specialist mental health services in Gloucestershire. They will also support parents and teachers to help children and young people who are experiencing difficulties.


If you have any questions or would like to discuss support for your child, please speak to Mrs Lucy Stevens - Tel:  01594 832262 / email
