Mental Health & Wellbeing

At Ebbw Fawr we strive to ensure wellbeing is at the heart of our community. Having the wellbeing as a core value of our school not only improves morale and performance, but normalises conversations about health, whether physical or mental, enabling people to speak out sooner if they are struggling or worried about someone else. We recognise that, in the same way we all have fluctuating physical health needs, we all have mental health needs too.

Within Ebbw Fawr Learning Community there are a wide range of wellbeing support services available to students, which run alongside the traditional pastoral system.  Access to such services is usually based upon pupil need which, in turn, influences the level and duration of support provided. The services listed below are just a small sample of the support available at Ebbw Fawr.

Support services

Wellbeing ambassadors
Anger management
LGBTQ+ support group

SEAL (Social & Emotional Aspects of Learning)

We wholeheartedly believe that a pupil’s wellbeing is just as important as academic achievements. Mental health and wellbeing is undoubtedly linked to academic performance: we don’t neglect the first when pursuing the second.
