Welcome to the Wellbeing area of our website. This is where you can find useful information on external support and resources for mental health and wellbeing. We recognise that positive mental health and wellbeing are essential to our children to enable them to learn and achieve their full potential. We provide daily wellbeing support in class through our PSHE and pastoral support.
In our school we aim to promote the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ as evidence suggests that there are five steps that you can take to improve your overall mental health and wellbeing. These five steps are : connect, be active, take notice, learn and give.
