Parenting and Mental Health Support

As a school, we are support by the NHS Mental Health Support Team, which includes a clinical psychologist and Education Wellbeing Practitioners. 

The team offers to parents:

  • Workshops and webinars on mental health and parenting
  • Coffee mornings
  • Signposting to appropriate services
  • Early intervention: Free (NHS funded) one-to-one, parent-led guided self-help for parents who are starting to struggle with challenging behaviour and childhood anxiety


Parenting can often feel hectic, without enough time to think about what you’re doing to get the best out of your child.  It is easy to become stuck in a cycle of reacting to children’s emotions and behaviour in the moment without having the space to think proactively about how you’re managing them and setting them up to do well.  We work with parents to help them to understand their children’s feelings and behaviour patterns and put in place effective strategies so that family life can feel calmer and happier.
