Mental Health and Wellbeing

Embedded in our Christian value of compassion, we are committed to supporting all children and staff with their mental health and wellbeing. We have a whole school approach to this which is led by our Mental Health lead who works closely with our school Pastoral Engagement Officer. To ensure all stakeholders in our school have a voice with regards to mental health, we have pupil Wellbeing Champions and a staff Wellbeing Committee. We have also created a shared vision of mental health and wellbeing that has been co produced by staff, parents, children and our wellbeing governor. 


In addition to our whole school offer, we provide individual and group support to children as well as support for families as needed. We work closely with other agencies such as the Mental Health Support Team to provide bespoke support for those children who need it.

Cost of living support


Did you know that Norton Food Hub is based at the school just next to the main entrance? This is a community food and essentials resource funded and supported by the pupils at the school and the local residents. People are welcome to 'Take what they need and give what they can'.

Willow has donated some items for the shed as part or her Rainbows community badge. Willow would like you to know that there is a box inside the shed for your donations.

Wellbeing week Spring 1 My Voice Matters

The children in Hazel Class loved considering the changes they would make to our school and country if they were in charge! There were lots of considerations of the cost of food and utilities, as well as more fun ideas. The children created sketchbook spreads about themselves, responding to different prompts to show things that matter to them.

Wellbeing week Autumn 2 2023

Throughout wellbeing week we have been investigating the theme of  generosity and charity. Pupils have enjoyed discovering how being generous is not always to do with giving money or presents. We are all more aware of how to be generous with our time and our acts of kindness. We will will try to show empathy and compassion to those around us in the new year and beyond to make our wonderful school and even better place to learn and play.
