At Swalecliffe we will promote, develop, equip and prepare learners for life; promoting resilience, positive emotional wellbeing and mental health for all of our school community.
We recognise how important emotional wellbeing and mental health is to our lives, in just the same way as physical health, working together through challenges and sharing celebrations; feeling supported, heard, accepted, valued and empowered.
Below are some resources that we have found useful for information and inspiration.
If you have discovered something online relating to wellbeing that has helped you and your family and friends, please let us know via the contact form below so that we can share it here.
We’ve listed a variety of websites, in the hope that you will find something which is helpful. Only you will know what is right for you at any given time.
With our very best wishes
Mrs Watson and Ms Hill
Please get in touch with us in total confidence if you have something to share or if you think we can help.
