Students

MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING

The Skipton Academy understands the importance of promoting good mental health and well-being with our students. We encourage students to foster regular self-care in their daily routines and provide strategies and support to students who might be struggling.

The Kooth website is also a great resource and provides free, safe and anonymous support. Where feasible, our in-school counselling services may also continue remotely for those students already accessing this support.

If your child is struggling emotionally, they can raise this with their tutor or contact their Head of Year by email. Parents/carers can also do this on their behalf if they are reluctant to communicate how they are feeling.
