At Enfield Grammar School, we are committed to fostering an environment where every student can thrive not only academically but also emotionally and socially. We are committed to promoting mental health and wellbeing and understand that this is fundamental to a student’s overall success and happiness.
Our dedicated pastoral team provides support and assistance to our students, offering a range of resources to support students’ mental health and wellbeing, including counsellors, wellbeing mentors, pastoral support staff, and access to external services. We recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents, carers and outside agencies to ensure that every student receives the necessary help and support.
We believe that if our students’ emotional needs are met, they will be able to learn and engage fully in school life; our ultimate goal is to ensure that every student at our school can flourish, embracing their potential with confidence, resilience, and a deep sense of wellbeing. We believe that by fostering good mental health, we provide the foundation for lifelong success and happiness.

We value your partnership in creating a supportive and nurturing community, where all students succeed.
Parents/carers supporting their child’s mental health and maintaining communication with the school are of paramount importance. A collaborative effort between parents/carers and the school helps to ensure that a child’s mental health and wellbeing are being addressed holistically, taking into account a child’s experiences both at home and in school, ensuring a joined-up approach.
Working together we are able to provide families with resources and information to help them support their child’s mental health needs. We are also able to work with families and external agencies, to provide a tailored approach, depending on the needs of our students.
We provide access to in-house counsellors and wellbeing mentors and refer to external services including CAMHS, MyMe, Enfield Bereavement Service, Family Based Solutions, Enfield Behaviour Support Services and Humankind. We are also part of the Enfield Thrives Together Community Network, which is a Local Authority initiative bringing together schools and services in Enfield to share best practice in mental health support.

We understand that bereavement can be a challenging experience, which affects students and their families in various ways. We are committed to creating a safe environment in which we support our students, by providing a safe space to talk to our wellbeing mentors and/or by referral to an external bereavement counsellor (Enfield Bereavement or Grief Encounters).

By working with external services, we are able to offer specialist support to our students and their families, such as mental health, bereavement and substance abuse. This supplements our in-house provision and provides a range of services and targeted support for our students.
Working collaboratively with external services helps to promote the wellbeing and success of our students.
