The problem

1 in 6 children likely to have a mental health problem

According to NHS Digital, one in six children aged between six and 16 in England are likely to have a mental health problem. Whether it’s brought on by studies, peer pressure, problems at home or something else entirely, pastoral leaders are ideally placed to spot early warning signs of vulnerabilities and poor mental health – it’s critical they’re given the tools to address wellbeing needs.  

The State & Independent education sectors face some shared and some very different challenges.  

State Secondary Schools & Colleges have established student support services, but whilst they want to do more to support their students, they face a backdrop of budget cuts and rising demand for these valuable front line services.   

Independent schools have set very high Pastoral standards and in particular Boarding Schools. Even with well-established Pastoral strategies and dedicated specialist resources, there is increasing scrutiny by parents, Trustees and Schools Inspectors with a particular focus on Wellbeing.  Independent schools now face the challenge to robustly audit & report on their Student Wellbeing standards. 

The Benefits

How does Govox improve school wellbeing?

With the right resources, Schools, Colleges and Universities can do more to champion mental health in young people and identify those who are struggling and who might benefit from personalised support.  

Govox helps Pastoral leaders & teachers, put a discreet lens on students’ mental health and extract information from them in a non-intrusive way, we often see over 80% engagement rates. In a class of 30, five young people are likely to be living with poor mental health – we help Schools, Colleges and Universities spot who.

FEATURES

How Govox helps the education sector

As a Pastoral Leader in your school or college, you’ll benefit from:

Increased engagement

The results of our student and teacher wellbeing survey can be made anonymous or visible, and the whole thing takes less than two minutes to complete, meaning users are more likely to engage.

Tailored support

Data is useful but clear insights enable you to make a real difference. With personalised results, you’ll be able to identify trends or patterns in an individual and spot key areas of concern.

Meaningful connections

We exist to facilitate a bond of trust between you and your students – you’ll know when to step in and, importantly, how to offer the support that makes the difference.

Reduced absenteeism

Give students and teachers the tools to manage mental health and people are less likely to take sick days or prolonged time off.

Improved productivity and performance

The platform enables you to foster a people-centric ethos that shows students and parents alike that wellness is important and their contribution is highly valued.

Reduced teacher turnover

Proactively look after teachers’ wellbeing and drive their loyalty and sense of belonging. This results in increased staff retention and, consequently, lower recruitment costs.

The best support available, for as little as the price of a cup of coffee.

Depending on your specific requirements, there is a Govox wellbeing solution for you.

Speak to us today

The Govox team has worked closely with our Pastoral team to create a series of questions, asked at regular intervals throughout the term, that allow us to capitalise on our pupils’ use of technology. The red flag system then allows us to triage any issues at an early stage and be proactive rather than reactive to mental health issues.
