Mental Health and Wellbeing
At Mount Pleasant we promote positive mental health and wellbeing for every member of our school community. This includes children, staff and people within our wider families. We have a supportive and caring ethos model of respect and kindness, where each individual is valued.
Our commitment includes ensuring that we actively nurture our children's physical and mental health. As a school we ensure our priority is to keep our children safe, and to provide the best possible environment in which every child is cared for and able to learn and grow. This ethos underpins all of our teaching and learning.
Although school staff are not qualified to diagnose mental health conditions, we work in collaboration with external agencies and can help support you in accessing the support needed.
If you are concerned about your child’s wellbeing, please contact your child’s class teacher in the first instance with your concerns.
