Mental Health

At Farndon Primary School, we approach the welfare of our pupils in a positive way; all our staff reinforce the values and ethos of the school.  We want our children to stay happy, feel secure and enjoy being in school in whatever activity they are taking part.


All our children should feel able to talk freely and openly to any member of staff if they have any worries or problems of any kind on a work or personal level.  Staff always respond to children in an appropriate manner, offering advice, support, guidance and reassurance in conjunction with our other policies, including our Safeguarding Policy.


Here is a list of useful websites that offer support and advice: Childline 0800 1111

 If you're worried about a child, even if you're unsure, contact our professional counsellors for help, advice and support.
