Progeny is a whole-school approach to supporting emotional health and wellbeing across school communities. The service was set up to enable partnerships to be developed and pathways to be formed, to develop capacity and competence to address the presenting needs of our students.

As part of the project a 'Young People and Parents Resource Pack' was developed which provides details about a number of local and national organisations which can support young people and their parents.

Now entering its 4th year Progeny has become a service which successfully addresses and supports the needs of our whole school communities. We know that young people who are stable, secure and happy in their own skin go on to succeed, make positive choices and live fulfilling adulthoods.
