Now more than ever, its is really important to take care of our mental wellbeing. On this page of our website you will find some useful links and resources, together with advice for parents and carers.
At Wallington Primary Academy, we are committed in promoting positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that our parents are our most valuable way to learn about our pupils, who have the opportunity to express their views, including input into their child’s educational journey and feel supported throughout their time with us.
We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. We believe having a mentally healthy community is not about being happy all the time, but about working together through the challenges and sharing the celebrations; feeling supported, heard, accepted, valued and empowered.
We endeavour to ensure that children are able to manage times of change and stress and aim to ensure that they are supported to reach their potential or to access help when they need it.
We know that our staff are our most important resource and are valued, supported and encouraged to develop personally and professionally within a caring, purposeful school community.
