Our School's senior mental health lead is: Miss Suzie Brown 

How do we support mental health at school?

At Thornton in Craven Community School we are committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all pupils, staff and members of our school community. 

Learning about mental health is part of our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum for all children. This teaching and learning for all is part of the prevention phase of mental health. Children receive dedicated PSHE teaching each week. Beyond lesson time, our school culture embeds good mental health. For example, our extensive grounds have been developed as a haven for nature and exercise. Pupils have access to these areas at playtimes, during the daily mile and in gardening club and sports clubs. There is always a staff member for children to talk to.  

Working with Parents

Parents are always included in any concerns we have about a pupils’ health. We ensure that parents have a voice and recognise their contribution.

Please also see our Zones of Regulation page to help your child talk about how they are feeling.
