“Heads and teachers may be acting illegally because they do not know the full extent of physical and mental health problems among students, according to research commissioned by the Government” Times Educational Supplement, 17 September 2010
The new report has said that schools are not abiding by the Disability Discrimination Act and the Equality Act because they have not identified the children in their care that are suffering from mental health problems. Many teachers are still unaware of the pupils in their class that are coping with mental and physical illness. Are you confident that you have identified every child in your care that is coping with a mental illness and are you providing the best possible support for these children in every classroom?
Attend the 3rd annual Promoting Mental Health in Schools conference to receive a complete toolkit on how to identify pupils with a mental illness and ensure that a whole-school approach is taken so that they are receiving the highest possible standard of provision.
