Mental Health and Wellbeing
Monica Taylor is our Family Support Worker and Mental Health Champion in school. At St Matthew's Catholic Primary School we believe in promoting positive Mental Health and Wellbeing. We help our children to understand and manage their thoughts, feeling and behaviours.
- eating a good balanced diet
- good physical health and regular exercise
- the freedom to play indoors and outdoors
- feeling loved, trusted, understood, valued and safe
- being able to learn and having the opportunities to succeed
- having a sense of belonging in their family, school and community
If your child is experiencing difficulties with their Mental Health and Wellbeing you can contact Mrs Taylor in school on 01274 541737 between 8am and 4pm. We have also put some useful links below that you may want to look at too.
