SS Peter and Paul Primary School

Mental Health Information and Support

Good mental health and well-being is just as important as good physical health. Like physical health, mental health can range across a spectrum from healthy to unwell; it can fluctuate on a daily basis and change over time.  

At SS Peter and Paul, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.  


Mrs Brady is our Mental Health Lead and has recently completed her Mental Health Lead training withe the National College. If you have concerns about your child's mental health please contact your child's teacher or Mrs Brady. 


 At our school through our PHSE and RSE curriculum we aim to:

  • encourage children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks 
  • help children develop a better understanding of their emotions and feelings                      
  • give guidance to the children to help them form and maintain relationships
  • actively encourage children to feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • promote self esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
