Supporting Children’s Mental Health

What is mental health?

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t. When our mental health is good, we feel motivated and able to take on challenges and new experiences. But when our mental health is not so good, we can find it much harder to cope. (Young Minds, 2022)


Ensuring mental health and wellbeing is a priority:

The Mental Health and Wellbeing of our community is key towards supporting everyone to reach their potential and flourish.


Our pledges:

  • To provide an excellent PSHE curriculum from EYFS to Year 6.
  • To ensure our children have access to a wide range of opportunities and experiences to help them flourish.
  • To raise awareness of mental health throughout school life.
  • To teach our children strategies to support them to regulate their feelings.
  • To create calm and safe learning environments where social, emotional and mental health support is a priority.
