  • Firth Park Academy
  • Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Frankie has supported students individually through wellbeing kits and coordinating home visits, as well as collaboratively through the Junior Leadership Team she created to promote happiness, positive mental health, and anti-discrimination throughout the school. She supports families through the online Parent Community Advisory Board with weekly wellbeing surveys, quizzes, and wellbeing walks to support Firth Park Families. She has raised thousands of pounds to run Firth Park Academy’s food bank, before evolving this into a weekly EcoShop to support the most vulnerable community members. This all alongside supporting staff with a wellbeing Facebook group, regular mental health drop-in sessions, end of the week yoga sessions, and a weekly wellbeing blog.
