At St Ethelbert's Catholic Primary School and Nursery, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health.


We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement. Children can face difficulties from time to time with some facing significant life events during their school journey.


We take a whole school approach to promoting positive mental health that aims to help children become more resilient, happy and successful and to prevent problems before they arise.
