Pupil Mental Health 
Pupil Mental  Health Wellbeing
We recognise that children's mental health is a crucial factor in their well-being and can affect their learning and achievement. All children go through difficulties during their school journey and some face significant life events.
The Department of Education (DFE)  recognises that: "in order to help their children succeed:  schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy.
School is a place for children and young people to experience a nurturing and supportive environment that has the potential to develop self-esteem and give positive experiences for overcoming adversity and building resilience.
Our aim is to develop the protective factors which build resilience to mental health problems and to be a school where:
  • all children are valued
  • children have a sense of belonging and feel safe
  • children feel able to talk openly with trusted adults about their problems without feeling any stigma
  • positive mental health is promoted and valued
  • bullying is not tolerated
