Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub


Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing at Loxford School

Here at Loxford we wanted to make a place of support for our community. We care for the wellbeing of our Staff, our Students and their families, and everyone in our community. 

Looking after our Mental Health is so important. This Hub has been designed to help direct all in our community to the best resources to support our Mental Health, we hope there is information to support a person who may be in need of that support.

Every student’s first port of call other than speaking to a member of staff in school is to use Kooth . This offers wellbeing support 365 days a year via a range of self-help materials and peer to peer support which young people are able to contribute to.


Kooth also has an online wellbeing team from 12pm- 10pm on weekdays and 6pm- 10pm on weekends offering 1:1 text-based online counselling via live chat or messaging.


You will see below we have constructed our School’s Provision Map, outlining the Mental Health Support we are able to provide in school and/or through external support agencies.

There is also a directory of support that is available through local channels. Over time, we will be adding to it, so that the services outlined are all contemporary and relevant to the Loxford Community whether this be students, staff or those in the wider community.

When looking after your own Mental Health and the Mental Health of others, there are always three basic ingredients that are cited as key to helping maintain healthy Mental Health.

These are:

Exercise well; eat healthy foods and aim for a good, sustained night’s sleep.

We hope that these basic ingredients will help to sustain good, healthy Mental Health for you and those you know.
