Mental Health

We understand that many members of the school community, children, staff, parents and other stakeholders, will experience mental ill health throughout their life.  In fact 1 in 4 adults are affected by mental ill health at any time. We are committed to promoting positive mental health for our whole school community, raising awareness of mental ill health and challenging stigma.
