Resilient Rutland is delighted to announce the appointment of Lyn Harte to the role of School Liaison Officer.
Lyn joins from her previous role as Head of Year 7, Pastoral Leader and A Level Psychology teacher at Stamford Endowed Schools.
Lyn comments: ‘I have been a leader in education for many years and care deeply about the continuous improvement of the mental health and wellbeing provision.’
‘Having closely supported many young people with wide ranging pastoral needs, I have become acutely aware of the need to develop proactive support in our schools and communities to both educate about mental health and to also create an early intervention strategy. I share Resilient Rutland’s vision to develop and embed a whole school approach to mental health and I am enthused to become part of this fantastic project.’
Morag Tyler, Resilient Rutland Project Manager comments: ‘Lyn brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from many years working in the education sector. Having come from a school environment she is ideally placed to understand the challenges our schools face and support them on this journey. Lyn will complement the existing skills of our team and we are genuinely thrilled to have her on board’.
Resilient Rutland was started as a project in 2014 as a direct response to feedback from young people in our county - their overwhelming concern was that of mental health and well-being.
Having worked closely with professional agencies, schools, the Local Authority and of course our young people, we have arrived at a joint commitment to implement a programme to champion mental health.
The project has received £484,700 of National Lottery funding from the Big Lottery Fund, which officially starts on 29th Jan 2019 and will run for three years.
