Mental Health and Well-Being at Elangeni

November 2023

Mental Health issues affect children and young people as well as adults, with more than 850,000 children and young people in the UK having been diagnosed with a mental health condition.

Since September 2014, Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) has also become a category of Special Educational Needs. Children with a SEMH need will receive support in school.

At Elangeni, we endeavour to promote positive mental health. We offer a community of support, and will ensure that:

  • we help our pupils to build emotional resilience
  • we help our pupils to develop self-esteem
  • we help our pupils to develop greater confidence
  • we help our pupils to develop their social skills
  • we help our pupils to feel valued and a part of Elangeni by ensuring they have a voice
