Mental health and Well-being

Mental health  and well-being is core to everything that we do here at St Anne Stanley C of E Primary School.  The health and well-being of children, staff and parent/carers is everybody’s business.
 
Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual recognises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her own community.  World Health Organisation, August 2014
 

If you are concerned about your child’s mental health and well-being, you’re not alone. Please share your concerns with staff at school.

For more information on St Anne’s approach to supporting pupils’ mental health and wellbeing, please refer to our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy:
