We understand that life can sometimes be difficult and this can affect the mental health and wellbeing of children and their families. Below are website links that may be helpful.

We have a trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) who can work with children. Senior staff will also be able to signpost families to external agencies for further support.
