“Calm Zones”

Year funded: 2019/2020
Academy/Organisation: Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy
Area of Focus: Wellbeing

A dedicated ‘Calm Zone’ where students can access support relating to mental health. The room has been decorated and furnished and will be open at lunchtimes for any student who needs help.

Student anti-stigma champions, who have received specialist training, will be on hand to offer support and can refer any serious issues to staff members.

Donations to help refurbish the room came from Ikea and students raised money towards the cost by holding various fund-raising events in school.
