We are delighted to inform you that we have recently introduced ThinkNinja®, a new app co-designed by clinical psychologists and secondary school students. The app provides young people with a range of strategies and coping skills to support their mental health, emotional well-being and to build greater resilience. ThinkNinja® is free to download for all students on a smart device such as a phone or tablet. The app supports young people in a range of daily life issues such as being stressed, feeling low or having unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that might be triggered by pressures such as exams, struggling to make friends and social situations. ThinkNinja® was created by Healios, an organisation which has extensive experience in providing a range of high quality specialist mental health services on behalf of the NHS.

The personal data that your child enters into ThinkNinja® will not be shared with the school. The personal data is stored securely at Healios and is used to help improve ThinkNinja®. The school will only be receiving anonymous data reports on the usage of the app to help in our evaluation of how successful the uptake and usage of the app is at our school. If you would like to read more about Healios’ privacy policy, you can find it at: www.healios.org.uk/privacy-policy
