A new wellbeing hub has been opened at Saffron Walden County High School by town mayor Heather Asker.
The Sims Wellbeing Hub is in a quiet designated space at the school and its goal is to safeguard the mental health of students.
The British School Charity, a linked charity of the British and Foreign School Society, gave a grant and RWS Construction built the hub at a considerable discount. Construction began at the end of the summer.
The hub has private counselling rooms and a large area for group work. It will allow the school to increase the number of young people they support. Students can access school counsellors, group mindfulness sessions and one-to-one support.
The wellbeing hub will work in tandem with the existing pastoral Hub which opened its doors to students in September.
A school spokesperson said: "We look forward to supporting students in this very special space for many years to come."
The British School Charity provides grants to support the education of young people under the age of 25. Its current funding round for schools, organisations working with young people and individuals closes on February 28. See https://bfss.org.uk/grant-giving/subsidiary-trusts-2/british-school-charity
