Mental Health and Well-being
Our vision is to develop a school community where children can enjoy a welcoming, secure, happy and healthy environment, where all members can develop self-confidence, self-esteem, self-motivation, independence, compassion, tolerance and understanding of others.
Information about mental health services locally and nationally, check out the Halton Mental Health Information Point. Here you will also find tips, practical tools and guidance for children, parents, carers and staff to look after their mental health.
What Is Wellbeing?
Wellbeing is all about how we feel, the thoughts we have and how they impact our behaviour. It includes how comfortable we feel in our current situation and our levels of contentment and happiness. Our level of wellbeing impacts on how well we can cope with stress and challenges; in particular, those times in life that come out of nowhere and present problems and pain.
What Is Mental Health?
Mental health is all about our state of our wellbeing. It incorporates our ability to look after ourselves, like ourselves, keep ourselves physically well, eat well, sleep well and enjoy ourselves. Mental health also includes how able we are to judge ourselves by reasonable standards.
It is vital that everybody feels safe and welcome at our school. There are no outsiders at Castle View.
