Welcome to KCS’s  Mental Health

&

Wellbeing Page!

 

This aim of this page is to offer support to parents and children in issues of mental health and wellbeing.

Our vision is of a school where well-being and mental health are at the heart of everything we do, so that all of our children and young people – supported by everyone in our school environment – can build confidence and flourish.

Who can you speak to?

Children: If you are worried about your own mental health and wellbeing, or that of another child, then please come and talk to an adult in school.

You can speak to:

  • Your Class Teacher
  • A teaching assistant
  • Ms Cramp
  • A member of the office staff

Parents: If you have any concerns about your child, then please come and see your child’s class teacher in the first instance. The documents below, may be useful in helping you to get the conversation started:

Books on Prescription

The new scheme provides expert-endorsed information, stories and advice to support children’s mental health and wellbeing. Books have been chosen and recommended by leading health professionals and co-produced with children and families. The scheme includes titles aimed at a wide range of reading levels to support less confident readers, and to encourage children to read together with their siblings and carers.

This video was designed by Rochdale council.
