At Upperby Primary School, we have always valued and recognised the importance of supporting our children to be happy, healthy resilient individuals who can cope with life’s challenges. All of our staff work hard to support the mental health and well-being of all the children and adults in our school community. We aim to take away the stigma and negativity and help our pupils and families to talk openly.
Please use this page to help you find out about how our school supports your child’s mental health and to access resources and support for any concerns you may have about a child’s mental health.
Our School’s Designated Mental Health Ambassadors are:
Mrs Burns (Deputy Headteacher)
