emotional health & Wellbeing

We are committed to the wellbeing of children and staff.  Mrs Clay is our wellbeing lead and mental health champion.

All teachers have had 'raising achievement through mental well-being' training and there is an action plan to develop positive mental health for both staff and children.

Pastoral and Welfare Leader:  Mrs. Clay is in every day and her role is to support families through education and acts as a key point of contact for parents in all matters relating to student welfare and wellbeing including school attendance, behaviour and safeguarding. 

Pastoral Teacher: Mrs. Lawes works Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and her is to provide support directly to the children and will be running nurture groups and acts as a liaison officer as well.

Whatever you need to know about coping with stress, anxiety or depression, or just the normal emotional ups and downs of life, the NHS Moodzone signposts to lots of other mental health charities and resources.


Centre 33 is a local charity which gives advice, support and information to young people in Cambridgeshire up to the age of 25. Contact them if you need a chat about housing,  money matters, mental health, emotional well-being or anything else that is on your mind.


At this strange and unprecedented time it can be difficult for children to process and understand. The following eBook is a nice way to approach this subject and a good way to work through the topic together.
