The well-being of pupils is very important to us at Morton Trentside and is at the heart of our ethos to support and nurture the whole child. This is particularly important as our school community emerges from the pandemic and well-being is currently a whole school focus. Children and staff are encouraged to embed well-being into the school timetable with daily active minutes, mindfulness activities, brain breaks and one to one conversations to foster positive relationships between staff and pupils.
If you are concerned about the mental health or well-being of your child, please don't hesitate to contact myself or the class teacher for advice and support. We are here to help.
Thank you, Mrs. Clarke
