Well-being resources for Parents

Mental Health and Well-being

At St Bridget’s Primary School, we provide an effective and enjoyable teaching and learning environment, where children can flourish. We aim to promote the mental and physical health and well-being for our staff, parents and pupils.

 

Promoting good mental health and well-being is a priority for us to ensure that we can all reach our full potential. During uncertain times such as these, our anxieties and fears can have a negative effect on our own well-being and on those around us.

 

Below we have provided some useful links and resources (for adults and children) to ensure we receive the support and advice we need:
