Mental Health and Wellbeing
Our school mission statement is 'As Children of God we Love One Another.' To complement this as part of our commitment to the wellbeing of our children, families and staff we recognise the importance of promoting and protecting positive emotional wellbeing and mental health. In the first instance if you have any concerns please speak to your child's class teacher or the school SENDCO Mrs Sarah Clowes.
We are also able to offer a signposting service to a range of services supporting and promoting Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Ahh the school holidays…time to relax and enjoy some sunshine (if the British weather allows).
For many of us, summer is the season of fun and freedom but if you’re living with a mental health issue, you might not be quite so excited at the prospect of the weeks ahead. If so, we’ve put together some top tips for managing your mental health over the summer holidays. There is a calendar with suggestions for different activities for children and families and a resource for parents/carers with self-care tips and suggestions for their local area. Please take a look.
