DOBCROFT INFANT SCHOOL

Mental Health and Wellbeing

The mental health and wellbeing of all members of Dobcroft Infant School (including staff, children and parents) is fundamental to our school vision; To provide a foundation for fulfilled lives, inspiring confident and happy learners. 

One in ten children and young people aged 5 to 16 have a clinically diagnosed mental health disorder and around one in seven has less severe problems.

Nine out of ten children and young people with mental health problems experience stigma and discrimination. We want to support all our staff, children and parents to ensure that we respect each other and our surroundings.

There is also a good reading list available at https://reading-well.org.uk/books/books-on-prescription/young-people-s-mental-health/general
