As a school, we take mental health and wellbeing very seriously and it is at the forefront of our school’s vision of leading a mentally healthy school so that 'all things are possible'.
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 firmly believe that being mentally healthy is needed for us to cope with day to day life and needs to be prioritised in order for children to be ready for any other learning. On this page we will be sharing ideas about how to support your mental health and wellbeing.

Mrs Bailey is our Pastoral Lead for the school. She works 3 days per week and liaises with all class teachers and teaching assistants regarding the well-being of the children on a day to day basis. Mrs Bailey sometimes sees children to help them understand their emotions and feelings and deal with any worries they may have in a non-intrusive way using drawing and talking, art or Lego therapy for which she has accredited training.
Mrs Bailey has Open Door lunchtime on Fridays from 12 -1pm when all children can come and see her if they have a worry they wish to see her about.
