Supporting Pupil Well-Being and Mental Health
"One in five children will experience a mental health difficulty at least once during their first 11 years, and many adults with lifetime mental health issues can trace their symptoms back to childhood" source: https://www.place2be.org.uk/media/10046/Childrens_Mental_Health_Week_2016_report.pdf
At Nancy Reuben Primary School, we are proactive in supporting children. Here are some of the things we offer:
