Healthy Minds is a unique approach to teaching personal, social, health topics that enables students to navigate the world within and beyond school. Students are taught one lesson per week from Y7 – 10 and enjoy a range of lessons that enable class discussions and debates. Students participate in a variety of topics that include building resilience, ensuring internet and mobile phone safety, aspirational career guidance, as well as how to maintain healthy relationships. The lessons are taught by a variety of specifically trained Leigh Academy staff and continue to be popular among the students. The Leigh Academy has achieved the Healthy Minds kitemark from Bounce Forward. For more information about Resilience, please watch this short animated video.
