Letter of commendation and recognition for outstanding practice.

I am writing to congratulate you on your school’s commitment and successes in embedding the Somerset Wellbeing Framework in your school. We recognise that this has been a very challenging year and yet your school has gone the extra mile to make a difference for your school community and we thank you for all that you do in putting wellbeing at the heart of education.

This letter is also one of commendation, gratitude and recognition to your staff members, Karen Mellish and Alison Vercoe whose passion, commitment and leadership skills have truly made a difference in contributing to a whole school approach to positive mental health and wellbeing.

Your school has been very creative and innovative, and this is evidenced in the work which you have submitted. It is outstanding and we hope that you celebrate all your efforts with your local school community.

To show our appreciation for all your school’s hard work we have published an e-zine in which your school is celebrated. Click here to read the E-zine and find out more about the Health and Wellbeing Framework.
