Warwickshire County Council is inviting education settings across the county to apply to support education settings, from the early years to further education, to help children and young people build resilience and improve their overall sense of positive wellbeing.
The one-off grant, totalling £250,000, will be shared among settings across the county to support them to develop positive mental health initiatives and encourage children and young people to set goals focusing on their strengths and abilities.
Bids of between £500 and £2,000 are being invited from all primary, secondary, special schools and academies in Warwickshire, as well as further education colleges and local authority maintained nurseries.
Bids should clearly outline how the money would be used to achieve the following outcomes:
- Children and young people will be supported through the curriculum to build their resilience and positively manage their mental wellbeing
- Children and young people will be supported to set their own mental wellbeing goals, focussing on their strengths and abilities
- Staff will be supported to develop their confidence in delivering a mental health curriculum
- Education settings will have a comprehensive and accessible mental health curriculum
- Education settings will have an environment that supports positive mental wellbeing
The application window is now open and will close on Monday 17 January 2022.
