Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Mobberley C of E Primary School, we are committed to support the emotional health and wellbeing of all of our pupils and staff. We recognise that the complete experience of school life contributes to the emotional wellbeing of everyone who learns and works at Mobberley C of E Primary. Therefore, we take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that each of us have a role to play.

Promoting pupil wellbeing is more than just helping children to achieve academically. A child’s wellbeing could be the key to their current and future happiness. With this in mind, we are determined to support our children in every way possible, to ensure that they are provided with the best start to their life and are fully equipped with the tools to manage their thoughts, emotions and wellbeing.

We feel the social and emotional skills, knowledge and behaviours that children can learn in our school can help them build resilience and set the patterns for how they will manage their mental health throughout their lives.

Friendship ~ Courage ~ Perseverance ~ Respect ~ Honesty ~ Compassion

Influenced by our Christian values and our curriculum, we provide a supportive and caring environment where each individual is valued and is driven by an ethos of respect and kindness. We have high expectations for all of our children, and we know they all have the potential to do well in all aspects of life.

We have trained staff and a range of resources and activities available within school to support our children, and we also work closely with a variety external services to provide further support where and when necessary.

Please, always get in touch with a member of staff or one of the Mental Health and Wellbeing support team. We are here to help and will do everything we can to assist you.
