Wellbeing & Mental Health

We are committed to the wellbeing of children and staff. In our school, all staff have carried out basic mental health training through YMCA in April 2019, and two staff are training as mental health champions in 2019-20- Ms Abineri and Mr Walker.

A new mental health website has been created for young people, parents/carers, teachers and other professionals.  It is a central point for good quality information on keeping well, self-help and support services.  The website covers a range of issues including stress, bullying, self-harm and what to do in a mental health crisis.  Please use this service as necessary.  Mrs Skillern, the Headteacher can offer you further advice as required.

You can also access mental health crisis support by dialing 111 and selecting option 2.  The service is available to anyone, of any age, currently living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in mental health crisis.  Individuals may call themselves or on behalf of someone else in crisis.
