Stoke Primary School is committed to ensuring that all members of the school community have strong Mental Well Being. A key factor in our approach is that Well Being support is the responsibility of a team not an individual. We have two teams in school; the Mental Health Team and the Youth Mental Health Team (Find out more about Youth Mental Health here.)
As part of the approach, a team of 5 staff have been trained in Mental Health First Aid. They are
Matthew Ascroft - Head Teacher
Lucy Pater- Deputy Head Teacher, Senior Mental Health Lead (qualification pending)
Rhiann McGarrity- School Business Manager
Rebecca Fenlon - Family Team
Carla Lapworth - Nursery Teacher and EYFS Lead
Vicky Noone - Assistant Head Teacher
Within a review of provision by Coventry City Council, the report stated
"Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Provision 2020
The school have 9 members of staff trained in Mental Health First Aid. This is an exceptional number of staff for a Primary school, and therefore will hugely benefit all the pupils who require additional support quickly and appropriately. This is especially important after the current pandemic which may have had a detrimental impact on children’s mental health."
