2 The Programme has existed since 1999. The Healthy Schools Programme (NHSP) is a joint initiative between DCSF and Department of Health (DH) - which promotes a whole school / whole child approach to health.The Programme has existed since 1999.It is recognised as a key delivery mechanism in the Children’s Plan (DCSF 2007) and in Healthy Weight, healthy Lives (DH 2008) – 21st Century White Paper reference.Healthy Schools is intended to deliver real benefits in respect of:Improvement in health and reduced health inequalities;Raised pupil achievement;More social inclusion; and,Closer working between health promotion providers and education establishmentsWe want all children and young people to be healthy and achieve at school and in life. We believe that by providing opportunities at school for enhancing emotional and physical aspects of health. In the longer term, this will lead to improved health, reduced health inequalities, increased social inclusion and raise achievement for all.

It may not seem like such an important aspect of our life, but it actually plays a very large part in our decision making habits and thinking skills. People with good emotional well-being have a much better chance of becoming successful and achieving balance.Various studies in the format and style of decision making but EHWB is about a person be more fully aware of their own self and others so in a better state to consider and actively take decisions.Whole School – empowerment and meaningful decision all need to be involvedEthos and curriculum - It is not just what is taught but what is also caught through both informal and formal education and learningNeed analysis - grounded in lived reality and data actually becomes part of learning processTargeted and universal – one size does not fit all but there areas of commonality and also distinct areas of support – tiers 1234 etcSystematic – Process is as important as the outcomes, engaging throughout the journey and directed by decisions which may changeMeasured and Balanced – Step by step approach and designed not to be prescriptiveContext – Policy driven and driving but must be individually and collectively ownedStaff modelling – if we don’t practice what we teach then we are teaching something elsePupil voice – first among equals – challenge and engagementKey partners – health, education, extended schools, community cohesion, home, school, young people and staff
7 Emotional health context ‘A state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.’ World Health Organisation, 2000‘Being able to ‘develop psychologically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually; initiate, develop and sustain mutually satisfying personal relationships; use and enjoy solitude; become aware of others and empathise with them; play and learn; develop a sense of right and wrong; resolve (face) problems and setbacks and learn from them’. Mental Health Foundation, 1999NI 50 Promoting the emotional health of children and young peopleNI 50 is a specific indicator of a very broad concept of emotional healthNI 51 Effectiveness of child and adolescent mental health (CAMHs) servicesThis concept is at the heart of Every Child Matters, and at the heart of many current developments within children’s servicesNew Ofsted Framework– well being indicators and health aspects of self evaluationNICE Guidelines for Primary and Secondary schoolsA duty to promote pupils’ wellbeing’ (Education & Inspections Act, 2006)Healthy Child Programme 2009Statutory Guidance on PSHENational Curriculum overarching aims:to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn and achieve to promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and prepare all pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of lifeA coherent vision for CYP emotional health that parents, managers and frontline staff understand and commit to is importantThe commissioning of emotional health services should be informed by a needs assessment that maps the population against factors that predict vulnerability to emotional health problemsThe guidance provides a service specification and an evidence base that can be used to compare existing provision and inform a gap analysis and action plan for comprehensive provision or better targeted provision.Greater coherence at national level - various programmes of work impacting on children’s emotional wellbeing (SEAL, National Healthy Schools Programme, TAMHS etc)Understanding of ‘what works and for whom’, including value for money – research and ‘customer insight’ work – talking to children and young people and their parents/carers.Greater understanding of key delivery issues for LAs and their partners – fieldwork with 8 authorities which have chosen NI50 as part of their Local Area Agreement (through NCSS). Looking at what is working well in these areas, issues around delivery and offering consultation on going forward.Healthy Child Programme
8 The focus on emotional and mental health has never been greater… PSA 12 and National Indicator 50.Children and Young People in Mind – report of the independent CAMHS Review. Good work going on to promote and support children’s emotional health but some weaknesses in provisionNational Advisory Council for Children’s Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health set upNew Horizons programme – highlighting the economic case for mental health promotion and early intervention in childhoodKeeping Children and Young People in Mind – Government’s full response to the CAMHS Review. Targeted help, intervention where neededNew Statutory Role of Children’s Trusts – formalising partnership arrangements between PCTs and LAsPSA – a specific indicator sourced from Tellus survey asking questions children having someone to turn to when they are worried, as a proxy for emotional healthChildren and young people who are emotionally and mentally healthy…achieve more…engage more fully with peers and their community…show fewer risk-taking behaviours…cope better with adversityStrong link between emotional health and e.g. school attainment, bullying, teenage pregnancy, substance misuse, participation in education, employment and trainingChildren and Young People in Mind – report of the independent CAMHS Review good work going on to promote and support children’s emotional health but some weaknesses in provision - not always planned strategically or as integrated as it could be - gaps in provision and lack of awareness of the contribution different children’s services can make to promoting emotional health - stressed role everyone across national government and local children’s services can play.National Advisory Council for Children’s Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health set up to: - ensure issue remains a priority - hold Government to account - spread messagesshowcase partnership at national level, mirroring what works on the ground.New Horizons findings are that between a quarter and a half of mental health problems in adults are potentially preventable through treatment during childhood and adolescence. Mental Health problems are estimated to cost the nation around £77 billion a year (5.3% of GDP in 2007, predicted to be 10.1% by 2026)CAMHS Review told us that schools are key. I know you get this – you have had the emotional health theme in Healthy Schools for some time. NSF for children, Child Health Strategy Healthy Lives, Brighter Futures, NHS Operating Framework, Schools White Paper, new Pupil Wellbeing Duty and School report card are taking us to next level. You folk will play a key role in making all this happen on the ground.

12 Healthy schools enhancement model handbook stages Set up a health and well being development group – how will this link to Children’s Trust eg. emotional health commissioning and EH model?Conduct a needs analysis for school population –how will this link to Children’s trust needs analysis and use public health information ?Select priorities – is emotional health NI50 a priority in LAA or CYPP?Develop meaningful outcomes and identify early success factors – how will NI50 ‘tell us’ data help in showing an impact on well-being?Identify baseline and activities/interventions - Can the NI50 guidance provide a helpful evidence base? Eg. on peer support or bullyingImplement activities/interventions – Are schools aware of and linked to partners who can help?Monitor against early success indicators – Future guidance on measuring the impact of emotional health interventions needed?Review against outcomes

Emotional self- management – the ability to harness and appropriately express emotions.Emotional flexibility – the ability to rebound from stress, loss and shocking events.Three decades documenting the ability to transcend the emotional challenges of life threatening illness, suggest an additional characteristic of emotional health:The ability to use emotions in decision making processes—mindfulness that includes a mix of thought and feeling.These positive attributes present as self-awareness, self-esteem, self-motivation and self-management.When you shift focus from emotional health to emotional intelligence, your focus changes. Your lens opens to include others in an interactive model. This observation has important implications for ownership and choice where emotional health is concerned.
15 Example Staff Twilight Steps to Develop Staff Well Being and Role Models"Wellbeing is a state of being with others, where human needs are met, where one can act meaningfully to pursue one's goals, and where one enjoys a satisfactory quality of life.” - ESRC Research GroupSteps to Modelling Practice within Teaching and School“The true measure of a nation’s standing is how well it attends to its children – their health and safety, their material security, their education and socialisation, and their sense of being loved, valued, and included in the families and societies into which they are born” UNICEF Innocenti ReportAims:To understand what we mean by emotional intelligenceTo learn strategies for managing our own emotional health and well beingTo build relationships and structures to support colleagues in their emotional health and well beingTo continue to best model emotional health and positive behaviour to our children and young peopleTo consider our school curriculum and how it engages with the emotional development of all.To develop whole school strategies to develop an emotionally intelligent school community.Emotional health and Well Being along side the other themes of the healthy schools programme actively contributes to all five areas of the Every Child Matters Agenda.Stay safe Healthy Enjoying & Achieving Economically active Positive contributionIf we do not model what we teach then we are teaching something else!Manchester University researcher David Spendlove argued at the launch of a new research project in social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL) that strategies for building students' emotional literacy will fail if schools continue to ignore the emotional needs of the adults responsible for engaging with children.Share best practice examplesHoney I love youContinuumTemper tantrum Street SmileBalloon supportAction heroSchool tieABC understanding from Penn Resiliency programmeCatastrophe – FantasticIt only takes a minute stress exerciseGolf balls – five steps to mental healthStories of positive interventionsResiliency – General Mcr successPrimary – peer mentorsPupil voiceStaff trainingLinks with CamhsTamhs and Mhhs
