Mental Health & Wellbeing
“Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”
(World Health Organization)
At Town Field Primary school, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for all members of the school community, including; staff, pupils, parents and carers. We aim to provide our children with the knowledge and skills for the exciting and important jobs of the future and make sure that they leave Town Field prepared to face our challenging world.
We aim to support mental health and wellbeing through a whole school approach and atmosphere. The school aims to recognise and respond to mental health for all. This may be through supporting their own mental health issues or helping them if those around them are suffering from mental health issues.
We aim to remove the stigma around mental health to create a safe and stable environment where both adults and children feel safe to talk about their mental health and seek support.
