Wellbeing is at the forefront of what we do here at Roecroft. We have established a caring and nurturing environment that supports each child as a whole. This includes work across the curriculum that promotes positive behaviour, mental health, well-being, resilience and achievement.
The level of support each child needs to be emotionally literate, self-aware and mentally well will differ. We have a wealth of interventions and support systems across the school to ensure every child has the social and emotional skills to achieve their potential.
Whilst all staff in school have a responsibility to promote the mental health of pupils, please find below a list of key staff with specific roles and responsibilities.
