It is important that you look after your own and your children's physical and mental well-being. Children with high levels of well-being are better learners. Below you will find more information on how you and your family can take care of yourselves and where you can go if you or any member of your family are struggling with your mental health or well-being.
Remember, you can always approach your child's class teacher, any member of the school Senior Leadership Team, Mrs Nolan or Miss Alderson as the school SENCOs or Mr Bloomfield as the mental health and well-being lead if you are concerned about your own mental health or that of any child in school. We may be able to provide you support as a school or alternatively direct you to some appropriate resources or organisations.
If you are looking for resources on behalf of someone else it can sometimes be tricky to know where to start. All of the resources we direct you to below have been selected specifically by Mind. Below is an explanation from Mind of what signposting is.
