Supporting Wellbeing and Mental Health at Montalbo Nursery and Primary School:
Collaborate: We work with numerous external agencies to help children and families who are experiencing difficulty. Our door is always open to children, parents or staff who need to talk. If you would like to discuss the support that may be available to you or your child, please contact the school office to speak to Mrs Bartoli.
Endeavour: We are constantly reflecting on how we can work to improve the ways in which we support the wellbeing of our school community. We are currently working towards the ‘Wellbeing Award for Schools’.
Inspire: Children are given opportunities to try wellbeing boosting activities through weekly wellbeing assemblies and related wellbeing challenges.
