Mental Health

The Mental Health of all of our school community is important to us.

We have a range of systems in place to support both children and adults in our school:


* A Worry box in each classroom

*Access to our reflection spaces throughout the school day

*Weekly PSHE sessions

*Weekly circle time sessions with key children, modelling conflict resolution and problem-solving

*Whole school collective worships about dealing with worries, asking for help, being a good Samaritan

*Weekly check-ins with children

*Mindfulness Club

*Quiet spaces at lunchtimes


Mr Trafford and Mrs Thomas have both attended Lead Mental Health Training.

Mrs Thomas is the Mental Health First Aider for children and adults in our school.
