Mental Health and Well Being

At South Otterington C of E Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.

At our school we:

  • Help children to understand their emotions and feelings better
  • Help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • Help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • Promote self esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • Encourage children to be confident, happy, kind and caring
  • Help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
  • Support through our vision and values
