We are very proud of this achievement and the hard work that everybody has put in, including parents, children, staff and our wider community.

It has been a real team effort and we would like to thank you all for your support. Well done everybody!!
Mental health problems affect people of any age, race, religion or income. The most commonly diagnosed mental health problems are anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, schizophrenia, OCD, personality disorders and phobias. 9 in 10 people who have a mental health problem say they have experienced stigma and discrimination as a result. Similar to other types of discrimination, people who experience mental health stigma describe feeling isolated, ashamed, misunderstood and demeaned. Talking about mental health can be really helpful. You don’t need to be an expert. The more we talk about mental health, the more we can break down the taboos surrounding it – enabling people to look after their own health, reducing the stigma around asking for help, and by giving support to others. In this way, we can talk to our children about different ranges of emotions they may be feeling. It is important to teach your child that there is are lots of different emotions we feel and that it is good to talk about it! We are all different, and we all need support for different things at different times.
