Our pupils’ wellbeing is paramount.
Red House has a well-deserved and long-standing reputation as a caring school.
Our delivery of high impact pastoral care has been recognised by Red House attaining the School’s Mental Health Award from The Carnegie Centre of Excellence. We are proud to be the only independent school in the North East to have won this award, which demonstrates our passion for wellbeing and positive mental health. We work strategically to improve the wellness of our pupils, and this award has highlighted many areas of success, as well as helping us to plan for emotional health and wellbeing provision.
Our ‘Zen Den’ room offers pupils the opportunity for reflection, and mindfulness is embedded in our curriculum to help children develop coping skills and strategies. Children are encouraged to be mindful throughout their day, using breathing techniques and meditation. ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ allows pupils to focus on wellbeing activities.
Our outdoor classroom offers pupils the opportunity to learn new outdoor skills and also allows them to see education and learning as a multi-sensory experience.
