Mental Health

At St John the Baptist CE Primary School, we see positive mental health and well-being as fundamental to our values and ethos.

We are continuously developing our Mental Health Team in school: we have a Senior Mental Health Lead (Miss Whittingham), Mental Health Leader (Mrs VIner) plus several members of our staff team who are trained in Mental Health First Aid and led by our Head Teacher.

Strategies in school which we utilise to support our children currently  include ELSA, No Worries, SUMO plus whole class teaching throughout the curriculum and PSHE (including focus days and Mental Health Awareness Week) which promotes good mental health.  We offer an open and caring approach to pupils, parents and carers.

If you are a family of our school and would like support in this area, please feel welcome to contact one of our team.
