Welcome to our Wellbeing page for parents to support their children and themselves
Having good mental health, helps us relax more, achieve more, and enjoy our lives more. We understand that children and adults may be feeling anxious, stressed, sad, lonely, or frustrated at some point. We sign post all of our children, adults, and school community to the ‘Every Mind Matters’ website: https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/every-mind-matters/.
