Mental Health and Well being

At St Mary's CE Primary School we want to ensure that we are creating healthy environment for staff, pupils and families where positive mental health is everyone’s business and every individual and contribution is valued.

 

Our PSHE curriculum  supports children to stay healthy in body and mind. We promote healthy eating, raise awareness of substances that can affect you, advise how to keep safe, look after money and identify positive relationships.

 

Through our PE curriculum we promote staying active and being fit,        

  

We know that life challenges may make us vulnerable at times and that anyone may need additional support at some stage. On these pages, you will find useful links to services and resources that will help manage and improve your Mental Health and Wellbeing. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our Senior Mental Health Lead is:

Mrs K Fellows

What is Mental Health and Wellbeing?

We all have mental health, in the same way that we all have physical health. Sometimes we experience good periods of mental health where we generally feel happy and can cope with every day stressors. Sometimes we may need some additional support. 1 in 4 people experience a mental health issue of some kind each year in England (Mind Charity).
