Mental health and well-being

The emotional well-being of our school community is of greatest importance to us. National lockdown is a challenging time for everyone and we must work together to ensure we are all supported.

If you are worried about your child’s emotional well-being or mental health, please contact Miss Rennison, Assistant Head for special educational needs, Mrs Gaskarth, Nurture lead teacher or Mr Kumar, Pastoral and parent support advisor.

If your child accesses therapy sessions in school, sessions will continue and be delivered remotely. Your child’s therapist will be in touch to make arrangements.

Children’s mental health week begins 1st February 2021. Look out on Seesaw and Twitter for lessons and activities celebrating such an important week.
