Kate has spent the morning sitting in a lesson at Roe Green Primary School, in Princes Avenue, as she announces the pilot initiative for the Heads Together campaign.

Mentally Healthy Schools, a new website, is designed to help teachers and school staff help pupils talk about their mental health issues.

The free website, which has more than 1,500 online resources, will be available in the spring after it has been monitored and reviewed.

Content will be provided in four main areas- teaching resources, risks and protective factors, mental health needs, and “Whole School Approach” for school leaders.

The Heads Together campaign is jointly co-ordinated by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, with the aim to end stigma around mental health in the UK.

The duchess, who is mother to George, four, and Charlotte, two, and is pregnant with her third child, brought together Heads Together charity partners, teaching organisations and mental health experts to create the online project.

Former headteacher Claire Thomson, one of the website’s quality assurance advisers, said: “I can see this website becoming a favourite go-to site for information about the many aspects of mental health.

“I think it is really important that all school staff feel that the information applies to them as well, not just to teachers. So, no matter what their role in the school, they need to have an understanding and empathy towards all the children.”
