Our Lady of Grace Catholic Infant School

Mental Health & Wellbeing

At the heart of Our Lady of Grace Infant School is a strong belief in the importance of providing a warm and nurturing environment that supports positive mental health and wellbeing.

We are extremely lucky to have a wellbeing adviser on site once a week to support the mental health and wellbeing of all stakeholders in the school community - children, parents and staff.   This service is supported by weekly access to a trainee art therapist and school councillor to provide one-to-one sessions of support for individuals - nurture groups and babywatching.  All children in Reception access babywatching to support them to develop empathy with others, aiding their personal, social and emotional wellbeing. 

Mental health and wellbeing is at the centre of Our Lady of Grace Infant School.  Throughout every school day, opportunities are threaded through to support positive wellbeing.

If you have any issues relating to mental health or wellbeing, please contact our wellbeing adviser through our Inclusion Manager, Mrs Patricia Geraghty.
