Emotional and Mental Wellbeing

Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people. They include depression, anxiety and conduct disorder, and are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives. The emotional wellbeing of young people is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults. As a school we are committed to supporting the emotional and mental wellbeing of all of our students. Below are some resources and information for parents and carers to use:
