Student Well Being

Extra support if you need it

This section is for students seeking to access information on a range of issues and young people who find it hard to ask for help.

At Quarrydale Academy our pastoral care is excellent. There are many people in the Academy you can talk to. You can also access this site, which has a wealth of information you may need.

General Advice

It is well known that looking after your body also helps your brain. However, we believe that health goes further than this.

A healthy person knows how to deal with stress, is self aware about personal safety and has a responsible attitude to drugs, sexual health and emotional well being.

Emotional Health

As well as looking after your body it is equally important to keep your mind in shape.

Mental and physical well being are two halves of a whole, you cannot have one if the other is being neglected. Remember there are people in the Academy who are willing to talk and give advice in these areas.

Mental Health

More than 850,000 children and young people in the UK have been diagnosed with a

mental health condition, you are not alone.

Young Minds offer advice and resources for young people.

The Time to Change website has real life stories and celebrity pledges to help end the

stigma of mental health.
