Adswood Primary School Receives ACSEED Accreditation

Adswood Primary School has been accredited with the AcSEED Award for its commitment to emotional wellbeing and mental health of its students.

The AcSEED assessment team were very impressed by the school’s mental health and wellbeing policy and curriculum; by the wellbeing coordinator and other staff for their relevant qualifications and experience; and the wide range of support and awareness raising about mental health available to students.

The AcSEED initiative is a charitable organisation focused on promoting the need for high quality emotional wellbeing and mental health support in UK schools and colleges, and provides recognition through the AcSEED Award to those organisations that can demonstrate their commitment to such support.

Councillor Dean Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Education at Stockport Council, said: “This is fantastic news and I’d like to congratulate the staff at Adswood Primary School for their commitment to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of their students. Having already received excellent SATs results and now this wonderful recognition, I’m very proud of the school’s students, teachers, staff, governors and parents.”

Headteacher Michelle Smart of Adswood Primary School said “Mental health and wellbeing is a key priority for all schools and it's a fantastic achievement that Adswood Primary are leading the way in Greater Manchester. The pupils, staff, governors, parents, carers and our community contributed to making this happen - we are all delighted.

“We value the whole child and support every child to ensure they access the best learning outcomes whilst working hard to address the health inequalities in such a positive and collaborative way.”
