In St. Mary's Academy CBS, we are committed to promoting positive mental wellbeing for all members of our school community. Although there are designated "Wellbeing" hours on every student's timetable, the promotion of positive wellbeing in St. Mary's Academy is not restricted to the classroom or timetable. Our teachers and students have positive relationships which are built on trust and honesty. Students are encouraged to achieve their potential in a holistic sense.

Students begin each day in St. Mary's Academy CBS with a "Registration" class where they meet with their classmates and a designated teacher who records their attendance. This registration class promotes punctuality and organization for our students but also gives them a warm and positive start to their day. Students can use this time to ask their class "tutor" any questions and/or voice any concerns they may have. This time has proven to be extremely beneficial where students forge relationships with their fellow students and teachers.

Each year group has a dedicated "Year Head" teacher who helps them throughout the year and is often the link between parents/guardians, the student and the school. This relationship is central to ensuring that all students in St. Mary's Academy CBS achieve their potential in all aspects of their educational journey.

Throughout the year and a student's time in St. Mary's Academy CBS, there are events which help them to reflect and grow. In recent years we have participated in Cycle Against Suicide, Darkness into Light, Active School's Week and many more. See photos below for a flavour of the activities that we have taken place in St. Mary's Academy CBS recently.
