Mental Health and Wellbeing Support

Promoting Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing

Wherever a child or young person lives, whatever their age, social or personal situation, research shows that there are ways to improve personal wellbeing. Improving wellbeing has a direct link not only to feeling better, but also functioning better. It helps with physical health, and also things like performance at school, and quality of life.

As a school, we have embraced the 'The Five Ways to Wellbeing' approach to positive mental health and wellbeing for all children and staff. 


The Five ways to Wellbeing are:


Take Notice
