Mental Health and Wellbeing Support
Wellbeing of our pupils, staff and parents is incredibly important at Aughton Town Green Primary school.
We are very fortunate to be able to provide a range of interventions and support to a wide range of pupils, through our own Wellbeing Lead, Mrs S Whitney, supported by Mrs C Dykes, our school DSL.
Mrs Whitney has trained to be our Senior Mental Health Lead, working with the Senior Leadership team to improve mental health outcomes for all.
We have our own dedicated Nurture room - Treetops - where individual and small group interventions take place, as well as a hub for any outside agency work with pupils.
We have an open door policy where parents are welcome to speak to Mrs Whitney, Mrs Dykes, Mr Huxley and Mrs Earl, our SENCO with any concerns they may have about their child. We welcome strong home/ school contact and hope to be able to support our families in any way we can.
As our school motto says, ' Only my best is good enough for me'.
