First Joint Report of the Education and Health Committees of Session 2016–17, HC 849 URL: https://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201617/cmselect/cmhealth/849/849.pdf Abstract: Schools and colleges have a front line role in promoting and protecting children and young people’s mental health and well-being. Education and mental health services need to work closely together to plan the most effective way of improving children and young people’s mental health and well-being. We welcome the Government’s commitment to make personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) mandatory in schools and colleges. We support a whole school approach that embeds the promotion of well-being throughout the culture of the school and curriculum as well as in staff training and continuing professional development. We recommend that the approach to mental health and well-being should be properly taken into account and reflected in Ofsted’s inspection regime and reporting. The Government should strengthen mental health training and continuing professional development for teachers to ensure they are properly equipped to recognise the early signs of mental illness in their pupils and have the confidence to be able to signpost or refer to the right support.
