Mental Health and Wellbeing


Here at Birdsedge First School we aim to build a culture that supports all children and staff to be healthy on the outside, so we can be happy on the inside. We do this through our whole school agenda of an inclusive, safe and happy environment for all to thrive. We are proud of our ‘Mental Health Toolkit’ and are constantly reviewing and informing our practise to best meet the needs of our pupils and their families
