Mental Health and Wellbeing

School Office

The emotional wellbeing of children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

Here, at St Albert the Great Catholic Primary School, we are proud of the work we do to support children’s mental health and wellbeing. Each class has ‘Wellbeing Ambassadors’ who help organise and facilitate activities and events linked to promoting good mental health and wellbeing.

Our Mental Health Team:

Mental Health Lead: Mrs L Wilson

Deputy Mental Health Lead: Mrs J Kelliher

Link Governor: Mrs Felices Palayo

During Just Talk Week and Anti-bullying Week, children across the school have been involved in many creative activities to help promote the theme ‘One Kind Word’.

Year 1 made a beautiful Tree of Kindness in honour of This tree is decorated with kind words and ways that we can show kindness to other people.

During the week, children in Year 4 enjoyed learning about the history of Anti-bullying Week in their guided reading lessons. Following this, they
created their own posters using Chromebooks
to raise awareness.
