Happy New Year 2024!

We hope you are well and thanks for stopping by! Wishing you all the best to come this year that is possible! Dream big and reach for the stars! We are really looking forward to moving into our sixth year of delivering safeguarding and mental health training and we are excited at what is to come.

As a chosen DfE supplier, in total we have now trained 37 schools to roll out a whole school approach to mental health in schools. The course is accredited and fully funded by the DfE and our most recent Cohort 5 even asked for an extra days’ training after they completed Day 3 – just so they could spend some more time at Nostell Priory where we deliver all of our training, and also so that they could offer that magical peer support to each other as we begin a new year.

The Mental Health First Aid England courses we deliver are available and now even easier to book your place on – either email or book via the MHFA England website. We are very proud to have trained 523 Mental Health First Aiders (MHFAiders®) over the last 6 years which has been incredible; meeting so many passionate and caring people all wanting to make a difference to the lives of the children with whom they work.

This year we will be working with local parents and carers again offering our bespoke course, ‘To the moon and back,’ specially designed just for them about supporting their child’s mental health whilst looking after themselves too.

And of course, safeguarding training is still available through SHS with the following options delivered on site at Nostell Priory as a multi-agency course (just how training should be!):

A day in the life – Safeguarding Children course (full day) or Designated Safeguarding Lead training

If you have any enquiries about any of our training courses just get in touch, or if you prefer, arrange to come to Nostell Priory to take a look around our beautiful training facilities and have a coffee and slice of cake. The healthy eating can always wait another day!

Happy New Year, take care and stay safe and well.  And don’t forget to look after you too this year!!

Warm wishes


Cohort 6 is now full.  Our next Senior Mental Health Lead Course will begin on:

25th & 26th June & 10th July 2024.

At SHS we provide a Safeguarding Policy health check and writing service.   Whether you are in need of a policy from scratch or a check of your existing policy to ensure it is up to date, we can help.  Feedback from a recent client: “When I work with you, your safety is paramount. I have even invested in a safeguarding policy specific to my work with you, devised by safeguarding expert @sarahhenry2002. Because it matters! All trainers should have one!” Read more.

Following the launch of The Community Child Protection Pledge 2022 , we continue to spread the word about this important pledge. To receive your electronic copy to print and share please email (this is a not-for-profit communication campaign).
