ROAR Whole School Approach – National


03/10/2022 - 09/01/2023 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

About the Course

ROAR Whole School Approach (WSA) supports senior mental health leads to develop a coordinated and evidence-based approach to access and implement the WSA model in their school setting.

It has been developed in partnership with colleagues from Education to give senior leaders an overview of key principles (based on the PHE model) to promoting emotional health and wellbeing across education. The training has grown out of Liverpool’s long-standing multi-agency city-wide WSA and the development of mental health support teams in schools.

This course works in synergy with the ROAR WSA assessment tool, which gives senior leaders a baseline report to develop and implement an action plan to see mental health and emotional wellbeing considered in all aspects of school life. Supported by ten stand-alone modules, the course will support senior leads to develop each principle of their WSA by using resources, accessing further training and support whilst maximising the role of local mental health support teams.

Participants can also access further ROAR Training (ROAR primary/secondary, Early Years, ROAR SEN, ROAR Culture and ROAR supervision training) to develop specific principles such as recognising need. Senior MHLs are encouraged to bring along additional staff to specific modules to build their mental health team in school.
