Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Middlestown Primary Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff and parents) and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health.

We have a wellbeing board in school which pupils can refer to for guidance and we hold a ‘Wednesday Club’ where children can  discuss any worries and anxieties they have. Alongside this, each classroom has a ‘worry box’ into which pupils can post their concerns and subsequently discuss them with an adult.

We also promote a healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet through our school dinners, healthy lunch box policy, daily miles and active PE sessions.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
