Well-Being and Mental Health at St Joseph's

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers), and recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement.

If you need any further support or guidance please do not hesistate to contact Mrs Tiffany Smart, our ELSA and Well-Being lead on: TSmart@stjosdevizes.wilts.sch.uk
