Wellbeing

At St George’s we believe that all children and staff should feel secure, valued and happy at school. We strive to ensure that children are supported in all aspects of emotional health and wellbeing and they know who they can talk to if they are feeling sad or worried.

We are taking part in the Wellbeing Award for Schools with the aim of improving our current practice so that all stakeholders can benefit from our inclusive approach.

Our Children and Family Support Manager, Mrs Johnson-Taylor, has vast experience and is available to give support and advice on a wide range of well-being matters. Parents can email her directly at ehwbstgeorges@taw.org.uk or telephone school to book an appointment.

Alternatively, parents can always talk to Class Teachers or Senior Leaders if they prefer.

Below you will find links to areas which you may find useful to support both you and your child. Please contact us if you have other information that might help to support our community’s emotional health and well-being.
