Emotional well-being is defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as 'A state of wellbeing in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community'. At Tudor, we endeavour to create a truly inclusive ethos and environment, in which all members of our school community can contribute and where emotional well-being can flourish.
At Tudor the Mental Health Lead is Katie Reading and the Deputy Mental Health Lead is Linda Penn.

- 'Five ways to well-being' assemblies.
