Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Emotional wellbeing, and good physical and mental health are essential to children's development. At Rucstall Primary School, we aim to foster and strengthen our children’s emotional intelligence and resilience using our school values in daily school life, through assemblies and within the Personal Development Learning curriculum. 


Below are two documents that aim to provide parents with guidance to support children if they are struggling with their wellbeing or mental health. As always, if you have a concern for your child please do arrange to meet with your child's class teacher, so that we can work together to support them.

If your child is facing particular challenges, there are things that we can support you to do at home as a first step. Below are copies of our parent leaflets, that may be of use to you initially. Paper copies can be requested from the school office, as well as a listening ear.
