Emotionally Healthy School

At Gainsborough Primary & Nursery School we aim to promoto positive mental health for all our pupils. We pursue this aim using whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils.

School staff spend a vast amount of time with the children and get to know them well, so can, at times, play a vital role in supporting parents and signposting on to the relevant professionals in order for children to receive the support they need.

If you have any concerns regarding your child/ren's mental health, please find below some useful contact details and websites where you can seek further advice and support.
