At Freshfield Primary School, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community; children, staff, parents and carers. We recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. Children's mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement.
At Freshfield, we believe that fostering a nurturing and supportive environment is essential for the holistic development of young minds. We recognise our role in teaching our children to manage times of change and stress, supporting them to access help when they need it. We also have a role to ensure that children learn about what they can do to maintain positive mental health, what affects their mental health, how they can help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues and where they can go if they need help and support.
