The wellbeing of our Marton family and community is of utmost importance and we are here to provide support for good mental health and ‘the flourishing of all’ within the school community. We recognise the importance of a ‘calm centre’ and how this can contribute positively to mental health and wellbeing.
In this area of our website we have information about things we do in school, things you can do at home and links to other websites and resources offering support. Follow the links in the purple box on the left of this page. We hope you find it useful – please do get in touch as we love hearing from you!
For more information about our approach at Marton, please see our mental health and well-being policy on the policies page of our website.
Our Senior Mental Health Lead is Mrs Lucy Wilson.
If you’d like to get in touch with anything relating to wellbeing please email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance and we will get back to you.
We work closely with Swans CIC to support children in need of additional support.
We have several policies which help to support the work we do in school – relationships policy, mental health and well-being policy and RSHE policy.
