Mental Health & Well Being

 “A child’s mental health is just as important as their physical health.”

Kate Middleton


At PPSA we couldn’t agree more.  We are committed and proactive in supporting the mental health and well being of our children, families and our team.

We are proud to say we are 3 years ahead of the government requirement, that all schools  are required to have a mental health lead, as we already have in place a trained Senior Mental Health Lead (SMHL) at our school.  Our SMHL works with a wide range of children, families and staff in supporting their needs and signposting to different services where necessary.

We are supported in this by our use of the Thrive Approach and by being a Mental Health Support Team school. You can find out more about these by visiting our Thrive and Children’s Mental Health pages.
