Mental Health, Well-being and Support For Families

There has been a great deal of attention paid to the physical and mental well-being of children in the media, over recent times, linked to worrying statistics about the rise of illnesses related to poor diet and lack of exercise and the increasing numbers of young children suffering from mental health issues.

Our aim is to create a mentally wealthy school, where our pupils, parents and carers and staff have the tools and the resilience to deal with life and flourish academically and emotionally.
