Mental Health & Wellbeing

Mental Health School Team at Walker from May 2022


Dear Families,


Shaniqua and Imogen are our new School Wellbeing Practitioners who will be

working with children, their families and staff.


They are part of the exciting new team called ‘My Young Mind Enfield’, also known

as Mental Health Support Team in Schools, created as part of the Government’s

initiative to increase emotional wellbeing and mental health support to children and

young people in schools. They work closely with the school and offer a range o

support to children and young people experiencing mild to moderate emotional

difficulties in school, such as anxiety, behaviour or friendship issues (Department of

Health & Department for Education, 2017).


They will also be supporting our whole school approach to wellbeing, providing

psychoeducational workshops or on-going groups to children, parents, and staff to

promote mental health and wellbeing in the school community. 

We have regular liaison with the team for advice and signposting. 


If you’d like any more information, please do speak to Mrs Booth, our Inclusion Lead or Mrs Andreou, our Senior Mental Health Lead. 


We use the Zones of Regulation with all pupils at Walker as a tool to express our emotions and behaviour.
