Mental Health and Wellbeing
Our Mission Statement:
Creating a Mentally Healthy Community
Emotional wellbeing and mental health is all about the rainbow of feelings that we experience as human beings. At Fairfield Infant and Nursery School we know that everyone is unique, and we teach the children that it is useful and important to recognise and identify our feelings so that we can learn how to manage them. We also know that it is part of life to go through times which are challenging or upsetting, and that there are things we can do to help protect ourselves and each other, to build our emotional resilience and to reduce the risk of poor mental health.
