Health and Well-Being Team

The following members of staff have received lead practitioner training for health and well being.

Ms Simmonds is our designated leader for mental health and well-being. She is also trained to deliver Mental Health First Aid.

We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our safeguarding policy which can be viewed on this page or on our 'policies' section.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns are discussed with parents/careers unless we have reason to believe that this would be contrary to the child's welfare.
