Aureus sets gold standard for mental health

Mental Health Identifier GOLDWe are delighted to announce that Aureus has become the first school in Oxfordshire to receive a gold award for dealing with the mental health of both pupils and staff.

We were among only six secondary schools in the whole country to be awarded the Gold status of the Carnegie Centre of Excellence Mental Health Award for Schools.

Executive Head Teacher Hannah Wilson said: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded Gold Status - it is a rare honour and reflects the importance everyone at Aureus School places on promoting and protecting the mental health of everyone within the school community."

We have recently opened a dedicated safe space for students to use as a safe space to explore their feelings. The Nurture Room allows them to take time out and, if it’s deemed necessary, they can also use the school’s sensory room to watch an aquarium or sit under a weighted blanket.

Hannah continued: “Our nurture room allows our students to self-refer and is just one of many tools we utilise to ensure our students have the very best on offer in terms of support across all areas of their education - we call it our Inner Curriculum offer."

A member of the multi-academy GLF Trust, we opened our doors in September 2017 and from the very start we have been offering holistic care allowing pupils to grow, learn and flourish. 

Every pupil has half-an-hour of mindful art, reading, science or movement each morning, ahead of lessons. Aureus School are also the host for The Didcot Art Room which is run by a national charity to bring art therapy into schools.

Our deputy head teacher Julie Hunter is also trained in mental health first aid, mindfulness and the science of happiness.

“A brain in pain cannot access learning and actually a student needs to be ready to learn,” she told a conference for school leaders in Birmingham last month.

Students at Aureus School, a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) specialist academy also nurtures each of its students so that all can thrive and become confident, articulate and aspirational global citizens.

The Carnegie Centre of Excellence is part of Leeds Beckett University and makes gold, silver and bronze awards to schools signed-up to its programme.

It is designed to “strengthen the mental health of the next generation by supporting schools to make a positive change at all levels of the UK’s education system and each award status lasts for three years”.
