Mental Health and Wellbeing

The Mental Health and wellbeing of our staff, pupils and parents is important to us and we are always looking for new ways to improve the advice and support we can provide. We have a strong team of people that can offer help including our Learning Mentors and our Mental Health First Aiders (Mrs Hooley and Miss Bake) so if you have any questions regarding Mental Health please get in touch.

If you have any questions or queries about Mental Health, the best thing to do is talk about it.

There are many people available in school who can offer advice.

Wellbeing Workshops!

Some of our Year 4 and 5 children enjoyed a Wellbeing workshop which covered the importance of having a healthy diet and active lifestyle and how these things can impact our wellbeing. We looked closely at the sugar content of different foods, we discussed our daily breakfast options and looked at different exercise we can do at home!

Year 5 Yoga!

5 Griffin have been enjoying some mindfulness time! They took 15 minutes at the end of the day to participate in some yoga!
