Emotional well-being & Mental Health
At Park End Primary, we place the emotional health and well-being of our children as a priority. We have a range of services to support our children, from 1-1 support to nurturing calm spaces and environments. We also use external services, such as CAMHS and REACH, to deliver bespoke support for those who need it the most.
