It enables children to self-regulate, build and maintain healthy relationships, persevere and engage positively with challenges. It enhances their academic performance rather than detracting from it, and also improves behaviour, attendance, attitudes and teacher well-being.

Sarah combines a background of teaching and leading in schools for eighteen years

 (as a primary school teacher, ten of those as a senior leader and then headship)

with the experience and qualifications as a Well-being Specialist


Sarah offers credibility in having ‘walked the walk’, 

having a deep knowledge, understanding and experience 

of the challenges of teaching and leadership 

which build authenticity and trust in the support she offers 



Creating a whole school approach and ethos that promotes mental health, wellbeing and 

resilience is inherently valuable; it improves lives.


From a staff perspective - it supports the recruitment and retention of a high-quality team, 

empowering staff to look after themselves and others more, handle stress more effectively, 

build their resilience, positive thinking and strategies,

which in turn build team resilience, culture and capacity to meet 

the needs of the children and improve school performance as a whole



For children / young people -  it lowers pupil absenteeism and exclusions;

builds self-awareness, resilience, character, and an understanding of their own well-being;

supports positive behaviour and embeds values such as compassion and empathy

develops life skills to enable them to self-regulate, make considered informed choices,

and to build and maintain healthy relationships;

increases cognitive focus, concentration and capacity for learning.



Bespoke Support – all tailored to the exact needs and priorities of the individual school, group of schools, academy trust or Local Authority.
