Mental Health and Wellbeing

Our pupils' mental health and wellbeing is the centre of everything we do at Crockenhill Primary School.


Mental health and wellbeing is explicitly taught through our PSHE and RSE lessons as well as being embedded throughout the wider curriculum. This includes our trips and visits , our use of our outdoor space and the variety of clubs that we offer. The pupils have access to continued pastoral support from the staff at school.
