A WORTH Valley school will participate in an NHS pilot scheme designed to promote mental resilience in youngsters.

Alice Jones, deputy head of Oxenhope Primary, outlined the school's involvement during an update she delivered at the latest monthly meeting of Oxenhope Parish Council.

She said: "We're passionate about developing good mental health in our pupils.

"We're taking part in the NHS 'Resilience Passport' pilot for our key stage two children, and we are the only school to be doing this in Bradford district.

"We are very excited to be part of this. Hopefully it will become a Yorkshire-wide scheme and it may even one day become a national initiative."

In her update, Mrs Jones also revealed the school's Community Cohesion Action Plan.

"We are going to be doing a community week, which will mean our children get to understand about the history of their village and their place within it," she explained.

"It will also be about developing British values."

She asked parish councillors if they knew of people who would be willing to come to the school and address pupils as part of the community week.

Worth Valley Ward councillor Russell Brown suggested getting in touch with former police officer Kash Singh's One Britain One Nation charity.

The group was set up in 2012 to unite people of all backgrounds by promoting patriotic events.
