Well-being and Mental Health

Mental Health Support Team

Our Mental Health Support Team have created a series of bitesize, introductory videos around understanding and supporting children’s mental health and emotional well-being. These videos are aimed at young people and their grown ups and are best watched together to promote conversations around mental health. If support is required for a child or young person, then please speak to your Emotional Well-being Lead in school, Mrs Garfitt.


This video is an introduction to Mental Health for KS1 children (age 5-7)



This video is an introduction to Mental Health for KS2 children (aged 7-11)
