The 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should give you good protection from coronavirus from 3 or 4 weeks after you've had it. But you need to have the 2 doses of the vaccine to give you longer lasting protection. Read more: https://t.co/qAOGzpFb5w https://t.co/knfGizv5Jd

Wellbeing at Home

We understand that this is a difficult time for families. Please see our short film below for ideas on how to cope with stress and anxiety during the Covid-19 outbreak.


Watch the HATO guide to coping with stress and anxiety during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Our aim within Harris Academy Tottenham is to always prioritise the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils and our staff. Through curriculum and pastoral provisions, alongside targeted interventions, we support our community to develop their own psychological toolkit, and ensure that everyone knows where to turn if they need help or support.

Our whole-academy approach to mental health and wellbeing is vital for ensuring that our young people flourish, learn and succeed. We ensure that we are providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience and encourage them to thrive in all areas of their lives.

To ensure the best possible outcomes for all members of our community, all parts of the Academy work together and are committed to improving wellbeing. It is continuous a partnership between governors, senior leaders, teachers and all Academy staff, as well as parents, carers and the wider community. 

We are dedicated to supporting all members of our community. If you are looking for help, then you can always find someone to support you within the Academy. See our Keeping Safe page for details of who to contact.
