Mental health well being for pupils

HiRes-1440x985 MentalWellbeing-Main-

Your child’s mental health well being is as important as their physical well being and we promote its importance within out curriculum and through the support we offer our children.

Children in years 4,5 and 6 take part in regular lessons looking at managing emotional well being and strategies to support reducing anxiety and stress.

For all our pupils we have worry hands, worry boxes and initiatives such as measure my mood where children can talk about their feelings on a daily basis.

All children have access to free counselling if they need it and we have also employed a health mentor to work with specific children one day a week.

We have a brand new pastoral unit complete with chill out zone and our resident cat Piper for children if they need a relaxed space.

Our school Mental Health and Well-Being offer can be found below.
