AcSEED
In Tameside we are extremely proud to say that a number of our schools have now achieved the nationally recognised AcSEED Award.

The AcSEED Award is presented to schools that have made a substantial effort to support the mental health of their students. It encourages and rewards the provision of high quality emotional wellbeing services, from the broad provision of information right through to appropriately targeted intervention. Based on best practices, the scheme defines a set of standard criteria that all schools must meet in order to receive the award.
 
  • Any UK primary or secondary school can apply for The AcSEED Award which requires an initial self-assessment and subsequent review and ratification by representatives of The AcSEED Initiative.
  • Qualifying schools will also need to renew their award status periodically to ensure that a high standard of support is being actively maintained and deployed.

“We are delighted that we are first primary school in Tameside to receive the AcSEED award. It’s an incredible achievement for the school and recognises that the wellbeing of our pupils is important. We have strong and supportive relationships that support emotional wellbeing and we provide a safe and inclusive environment for our pupils to engage in learning. We want to enable our children to succeed academically and emotionally for the challenges they face not only in the classroom, but in the future.”
Jenny Callaghan, Head teacher of Wild Bank Community School
 
“We believed that in applying for the award it would help us identify strengths we can build on as well as any areas for further improvement. The benefits to children are huge as they receive the right support at the right time, for which parents are always grateful.”
Deborah Mason, principal of Silver Springs Academy
 
“I’m so proud of the effort from the team across the whole school to achieve this accreditation. Our pupils have enjoyed presenting assemblies and taking part in workshops with parents and carers.  The interventions we’ve held have also given the children opportunity to discuss their thoughts, feelings, emotions and worries in a safe space.”
Melissa Scattergood, acting Mottram Primary School head teacher
