The wellbeing of all members of the Toynbee community is important to us. This guidance outlines the support available to pupils and their families who are struggling with their wellbeing. The first point of call if you are worried about a child who attends Toynbee should be their tutor.

Our designated mental health lead is Mrs Hill: e.hill@toynbee.hants.sch.uk


To mirror local initiatives support has been linked to the Thrive model. Support available in school as well as signposting to outside agencies can be found



If you are concerned for the wellbeing of a child or adult and believe that they are at immediate risk of harm to themselves or others please call 999 or take them to A&E immediately.
