Greatworth Primary School

Mental Health and Wellbeing


Mental health is a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realize their abilities, learn well and work well, and contribute to their community. It is an integral component of health and well-being that underpins our individual and collective abilities to make decisions, build relationships and shape the world we live in. Mental health is a basic human right. And it is crucial to personal, community and socio-economic development.

 At Greatworth Primary School we consider good mental health and wellbeing to be fundamentally important and are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of all our pupils and their families.  If you are worried about your child's mental health or your own please do come in and talk to us.
