Pupil Wellbeing

It is always important to take care of our mental health and wellbeing. Please look through the sections below for practical advice and information on how to access support. For Child Protection matters, click here.

We have put together some resources to help young people as they transition into the blended learning model. Click the image below to view these resources.

Supporting Pupil Wellbeing

 

Place2Be are committed to delivering a service that puts the mental health and welfare of the young person first and we will continue to provide a one to one counselling service for young people within Kinross High School. After the spring break the delivery of this service will move online. The content of the service will remain exactly the same and the online session will be delivered in a private and safe space with a highly trained counsellor. Our approach to children’s mental health continues to centre on the young people and early intervention to prevent life-long mental health issues. Please visit us at  https://www.place2be.org.uk

In joint partnership with The Lighthouse for Perth, the Rotary Club of Kinross and KYTHE, we are pleased to announce a new outreach service for young people in crisis on a Monday between 12 and 4pm. Pupils should speak to their guidance teacher to arrange an appointment.
