Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Didsbury CE Primary School we are fully committed to improving the mental health and wellbeing of all our pupils and staff. We consider mental health to be of the same importance as physical health and recognise the need to support both our pupils and our staff with this.
Our SENCO (Ms Smith) leads a Mental Health Working Group with members of staff from across the St James and Emmanuel Trust, including our Assistant Head and PSHE Lead. This working group meets every half term with the specific focus of implementing strategies to improve our school’s mental health and wellbeing provision. Please look out for updates from this group in the school’s newsletter.
Below you will find our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy which outlines the support that all pupils receive to develop their understanding of their own mental health, their resilience and knowledge of what they can do to keep mentally healthy. The Mental Health Identification Procedure shows the pathway that we will follow if we are concerned a pupil has mental health difficulties.
If you have any questions or comments about how we support our school community with mental health and wellbeing then please contact either Ms Emma Lomas (Assistant Head and PSHE lead) or Ms Emilie Smith (SENCo and Mental Health Lead) via the school office on 0161 445 7144 or on the following email addresses:
