"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
Welcome to The Trafalgar School's Mental Health and Wellbeing website for students.
At Trafalgar, it is very important to us that all of you feel supported, loved and cared for and also that you are able to manage your own mental health and resilience as you progress through the school and on into adult life. Making sure you know how to solve your own problems is one of the greatest gifts we can give you.
This website is specifically designed to let you know what support we can provide for you in school and give you an idea of what exists outside of school. We will regularly post news and fresh ideas about wellbeing on here and, if you have anything which you would like to know about or any ideas which you would like to see on here, let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember: mental health is not a destination, it is a process. It's about how you drive, not where you are going.

Whilst we highlight Mental Health Awareness week, we consider mental health wellness all the time.
Please read the booklet below, view the YouTube video, look out for my messages home via ClassCharts and visit the website - there are lots of great resources.
Why are we here?
Our School's Strategic Aims & Objectives
Our purpose is to empower students to be the source of their own success.
We will do this by:
Providing a healthy, safe and supportive happy learning environment so that all students have the opportunity to grow emotionally, socially, morally, intellectually and spiritually.
Building positive relationships and a strong community so that all stakeholders feel valued and a sense of belonging.
Upholding high standards of behaviour so that all students have a moral understanding and a sense of civic responsibility to make the world a better place.
Promoting the physical, mental and emotional health of the child and the importance of a positive mindset so that all students live long and happy lives.
Teaching students to 'fail well' so that students can rise to a challenge and are able to overcome barriers and setbacks.
