Acklam Grange continues to act as a lead in the revised Headstart Middlesbrough programme. Our commitment to improving resilience and emotional well-being in our young people remains a key priority for our school.

The ultimate aim of the programme is to equip young people with resilience to prevent mental health problems occurring in the first place, and to build the evidence base for prevention, early intervention and service redesign. Students attending Acklam Grange School continue to have access to a variety of services and links made with external agencies who can offer support. Providing students and their families with the tools and emotional support to deal with mental health problems earlier, can minimise impact and increase chances of students achieving their potential.
