Well-being and Mental Health
At Tithe Farm Primary we are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of all our pupils, parents and staff. We understand that everyone experiences challenges in life that can make us vulnerable and, at times, anyone may need additional support in some way. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
