Talal in Year 10 has created a clay vessel inspired by the natural form of a pineapple! The department can't wait to see what glazes and paints he will add once the pot has been fired in the kiln. Amazing work Talal! https://t.co/6km55b27fv

Great to see Monica and Angelica in assembly this morning performing a traditional Bulgarian dance the ‘Koprivshtitsa’. This dance is traditionally performed to celebrate the harvest, welcome spring and encourage good health. A fantastic performance from both girls! https://t.co/60Za7KNQCW

Here is an epic thriller which will also enhance your understanding of physics. Set in Peckham, we experience gang feuds and time travel with our hero Esso. A seriously good book which is soon to be a major Netflix movie. Recommended to our Y9 and Y10 students! https://t.co/bKmA4BAQgH

Student Wellbeing

At HAWI we take great pride in the way in which we support the children in our care.  There is nothing more important than keeping them safe, happy and healthy, whilst ensuring the best possible environment for learning as we prepare them for adult life.

Wellbeing at Harris Academy Wimbledon

Wellbeing is extremely important to us at Harris Academy Wimbledon. Nationally, we know that the context related to wellbeing and mental health has changed dramatically and there is a growing number of people who are suffering with mental health issues.

From the moment students arrive here at the beginning of September, we want all our students to feel welcome, safe and cared for. By feeling settled early on they can begin to grasp all that we have to offer; academic, social and extra-curricular. We achieve this through our strong pastoral care system which is detailed below:

The House Tutor

Each student is allocated to a House and each student has a House Tutor who they see every morning for 30minutes. Students should go to their House tutor if any problems arise in school. The role of the House Tutor is to support each student both in terms of their wellbeing but also their academic work as well. House tutors support students who:

  • Need support with: timetables, uniform and equipment, attendance & punctuality
  • Feel upset or struggle emotionally
  • Struggle with friendships
  • Need extra support with behaviour
  • Need extra support academically/with homework

School Counsellor

We have appointed a School Counsellor;  Ms Samuel is a trained counsellor and has strong experience of working with secondary age children. The well-being of all of our children is central to our ethos and this adds to our very strong programme of pastoral care.  As well as having timetabled sessions, Ms Samuel will offer drop in sessions and after school sessions for students who we feel need further support.

Social Worker in School

At HAWI we are lucky enough to be taking part in in the Social Workers in School project which is a government funded project between Merton Council and in partnership with selected Merton schools. The aim of the project is to support schools with the great pastoral care, wellbeing and safeguarding work they already do. Our SWIS, Miss Blanc-Viejo works with students in a variety of ways. Miss Blanc-Viejo mentors students, supports them with any wellbeing concerns and provides them with a safe space to talk about things they may be finding challenging in or outside of school.

Further Support

In addition to the above support the following interventions are also available at HAWI to support Student Wellbeing:

  • Listening Support
  • Behaviour Mentoring
  • Anger Management
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Zones of Regulation
  • Workshops with our Safer Schools Officer
  • Make a Change Workshops
  • Referral to our School Nurse
  • Referral to ‘Off the Record’
  • Referral to Merton Behaviour Mentoring Service
  • Referral to Mermaids
  • Referral to CAMHS

With this support we hope all students will be able to be self-managers of their own wellbeing, having developed the strategies and tools to be able to look after themselves, whilst also being aware that there are people available to support them should they ever feel like they need some extra help.

To discuss any concerns around Wellbeing, please contact your child’s House tutor in the first instance. Your child’s House tutor will then liaise with the relevant person within school if further intervention or support is needed.
