Amy Bradshaw – Trust Lead Mental Health & Wellbeing

Amy has been working as Trust Lead for Mental Health and Wellbeing since 2019, having worked in the Trust as a senior teacher since it was established. She is a passionate advocate for mental health and improving the provision for children and young people across our schools. She has worked in schools across Northamptonshire for over 20 years and has experience of teaching from KS1-5. She is a qualified mindfulness practitioner for both children and adults and has developed the use of mindfulness in schools over the last 8 years. She is a lead practitioner in the county delivering training and development for staff focused on personal and professional development.

Amy’s role has developed in recent years from delivering mental health and wellbeing specialist content to pupils, to working strategically with school leaders to embed a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing, encompassing curriculum, policy, practice and early support.   

Amy prides herself on building excellent relationships with colleagues and works hard to build trust, honesty and compassion.  She adopts a holistic approach to developing mental health and wellbeing in our schools through looking at the whole child and the whole person; finding ways to establish the foundations of positive mental health and wellbeing through developing everyday practices and authentic care in our schools.

Amy works with a number of local partners, including the Local Area Partnership for East Northants South, the Community Wellbeing Forum (part of the ICB) and Mental Health Support Teams (MHST) in order to give a voice to the children and young people in our communities and ensure they are heard when local policy is being developed.
