Mental health and wellbeing
As a school, we take mental health and wellbeing very seriously and we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play. We have put together a few resources that might help pupils, parents and staff to talk about their wellbeing.
Returning to school after the national lockdown
