Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Merton Infant School, we are committed to supporting the Mental Health and  Wellbeing of all our children, staff, governors, parents and community. We understand that everyone has a different background and experience of life that may leave us feeling like we need some additional emotional support. We want you to know that our door is always open to listen and signpost you to the relevant support.

 

At Merton Infant School we teach our children:

  • about their feelings and emotions                            
  • how to form positive relationships and maintain them
  • that they are an individual
  • that their opinion and voice matters
  • to have confidence in themselves 
  • 'tricks' to become resilient and manage stress with a positive outcome
  • the language to speak about their feelings effectively
