Mental Health and Wellbeing

Welcome to the Mental Health and Wellbeing Page

Hello and welcome to the Mental Health and Wellbeing page for Hooe Primary Academy. We are dedicated to supporting the mental wellbeing of our children and staff. We work throughout the year to provide our children with both internal and external assemblies, workshops and quality lessons to build our children's awareness of their own mental health and wellbeing and that of their peers. 

 

We hope you find the information on our page helpful. We endeavour to update the page as frequently as possible so keep checking back to see our latest work in school and in our local community. 

Mr D Ford: Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Lead, PSHE co-ordinator and accredited Mental Health First Aider
