Wellbeing and Mental Health
At the Hazeley Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise the importance of mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. We aim to ensure that children are able to manage in times of change and stress, that they are supported to reach their potential and can access help when they need it. We also have teach through wellbeing lessons and Drop Down Days about what they can do to maintain a positive mental health and how to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. We believe in the importance of students being able to access help and support when needed and that they know where to find that help.

Our Wellbeing programme identifies the key concepts, skills and attributes that are developed through PSHE education and we fulfill our statutory responsibility. Our priority is to safeguard students, support their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
There are three core themes:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
