Wellbeing

Welcome to our dedicated Mental Health and Wellbeing Page.

 

On this page you will find a variety of services that offer support locally, nationally and online.

As a school we take mental health and wellbeing very seriously and we are leading the way in highlighting this area. We are proud to announce we now have four members of staff who are now accredited in Youth Mental Health First Aid. We are also working towards a Wellbeing award, which will demonstrate how wellbeing and mental health in our pupils, staff and parents are at the forefront of our school's vision of leading a mentally healthy school.

We All Have Mental Health

Download the accompanying teacher toolkit from https://www.annafreud.org/wahmhtoolkit It's free! We All Have Mental Health is an animation designed to give young people aged 11-14 a common language and understanding of what we mean by mental health and how we can look after it.

Our dedication to Health and Wellbeing

 

At St Filumena’s Primary School, we understand the need for everyone in our school to have a healthy lifestyle. This helps pupils and staff to do their best and build on their achievements. We actively promote physical and emotional health, and aim to equip pupils with the understanding and skills they need to make informed decisions about their health, both now and in the future. By championing healthy eating, healthy lifestyles and emotional health and well-being, we are aiming to continue to raise standards and improve levels of pupil achievement. 

 

Class teachers are always available to support your child, but sometimes you might want to talk confidentially about an issue or seek the support of outside agencies.  If you would like to talk to one of our mental health and well-being leads, Mrs Tomlinson, Mrs Yorke, Mrs Bailey and Mrs Rogers please call the school office to book an appointment.
