Mental Health and Well-Being

At Simms Cross Primary School, we aim to create a culture, ethos and environment to support our pupils, parents and staff with mental health and well-being.

We have an important role to play in supporting the mental health and wellbeing of pupils, by developing approaches tailored to their particular needs. We have a duty to promote the welfare of pupils, which includes: preventing impairment of children’s health or development, and taking action to enable all children have the best outcomes.

Early intervention to identify issues and provide effective support is crucial.  Following the model outlined in the Department for Education document ‘Mental Health and Behaviour 2018’ we aim to ensure pupils talk openly about their own mental health.  

In addition, we work to promote parental engagement and continue to build strong, trusting relationships with our parents. We ensure all teachers are available to meet pupils and parents each day and work hard to invite our parents in to school at every opportunity.
