Welcome to our Mental Health and Well-being page.
In order to support the children at Wilberforce Primary School and ensure that everyone is happy and healthy, we practise well-being activities each week in class. If you would like to practise mindfulness with your child at home, you can go on this website in order to listen to the Mindfulness exercises.
There is also a Well-being Tip in the newsletter each week for you to try at home. Miss Clarke, Miss Laabi and Mr Wickham are all trained in Mental Health First Aid. If you have any queries or concerns about your child’s mental health, please do not hesitate to have a conversation with any of us in the school.
If you feel you need extra support, we have compiled a list of external agencies that you can use to help support you outside of school.
Here are some websites which will give you more information about mental health and wellbeing:
If your child wants access to a counsellor, they can call ChildLine on: 0800 1111 or they can contact them online.
If you would like to talk to someone about your mental health, you can call Samaritans on: 116 123 or for advice on your child’s mental health you can call Young Minds on: 0808 802 5544.
