Well being and Mental Health Vision Statement

At Cowes Enterprise College – An Ormiston Academy, we are committed to promoting resilience and a positive mental health and wellbeing for both students and staff. Being happy and healthy is the first step to being successful. We understand that in order to learn and achieve our best we all need to ensure we are responsible for supporting each other and maintaining a Growth Mindset approach to all of our endeavours. We place well-being at the heart of our academy and ensure that our packages of excellent support and intervention are bespoke through a thorough understanding of individual needs. We seek to involve all of our community in understanding how together we can support wellbeing and Mental Health.
