Mental Health and Well Being

Welcome back! In these times of change there is a lot of uncertainty and sometimes children get upset and frightened. Remember to reassure them that these uncertain times won’t last forever.



Remember you can always contact School even though we are currently closed at or @MissCornettSTM

Let’s Keep Active

While it’s important not to gather in numbers, let’s all keep active during this time and give the environment a helping hand too. This will help improve both our physical and mental health. Take part in the Walk To School Week this week.

Talking Mental Health

Talking Mental Health is an animation designed to help begin conversations about mental health in the classroom and beyond. The animation and accompanying resources have been created by a team of animators, children, teachers and clinicians, and is being taught to year 5 and 6 children around the UK.

Drop In Sessions for Children


Our school is working in partnership with Seedlings- a therapeutic service focusing on children’s emotional and well -being.

EVERY FRIDAY our therapist Marina will be providing DROP IN SESSIONS.

Children can discuss a range of things such as worries they have in school, developing and maintaining friendships, transition into different year groups or moving to new schools etc.

PLEASE NOTE- This is not a counselling session but it will give your child the opportunity to have their voice heard.

If you do want your child to access this service can you please inform their class teacher.



As the Pastoral Team at St. Michael's Catholic Primary School we aim to provide support for all of our pupils and their families. We offer a safe place where individuals are valued, listened to and supported to overcome any barriers to learning.
