SWA Awarded 'Carnegie Centre of Excellence for Mental Health in Schools'

Following assessment in March, St Wilfrid's Academy is proud to announce that it has achieved the Gold level School Mental Health Award from Leeds Beckett University. The academy was judged to be excelling in all 8 competancies on the award framework, including Leadership & Strategy, support for staff and students, work with parents/carers & external services, and the organisational structure and culture.  This follows the most recent Ofsted inspection in December 2019, where Personal Development was judged to be Outstanding and the academy Good overall.  As an identified Carnegie Centre of Excellence, St Wilfrids Academy will now look to support other schools with embedding strategies for supporting mental health and wellbeing.
