You will be aware that since 2021 Aberdeenshire Council has developed a number of Community mental health supports and services to support children and young people’s mental health.  To-date this has included Kooth and Togetherall Digital Mental Health Services, QuEST for young people who identify as LGBTQ+, and Nature Nurture Practitioners to support the age 5-11 year old population.

The Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to carry out an independent evaluation of the mental health and wellbeing community support services implemented by local authorities.

There are two surveys, one for young people (aged 12-25) and one for parents/carers of young people who have accessed community mental health services.

OURWBESITEBANNERFRONTPAGE

At The Gordon Schools we have recently renewed our Vision.

This guides our everyday actions and expectations and is a statement of what we are trying to be and do as a School.

An easy way to remember our Vision, is using the initial of our School – T G S

 

 

 

Together

Is about treating one another positively, kindly and with respect. We are all a part of the School community, the Local Huntly community and beyond. Our actions here affect other local, national and international communities. We must consider what consequences our actions will have on others and on our environment, both locally and globally.

 

Growing

We need everyone to value and look after their health. This includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

TGS should be a happy place, with support for everyone to feel good about their health. We want you to develop confidence and resilience for life in and beyond School.

 

Succeeding

Success means being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. If you succeed with this then you will learn as well and achieve as much as you can. Have a growth mind-set – explore new things and aim for future successes! At TGS we want you to be proud of your achievements and successes and we will celebrate those with you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information – we will be happy to help.

Mr P Gaiter
Rector
The Gordon Schools, Huntly
