The Amber Flag promotes positive mental health and wellbeing for all the children in the school. Positive mental health is important to us as it enables us to lead happy, fulfilling lives. The Amber Flag encourages everyone to be caring and considerate to one another and bring about an improvement in our wellbeing.
In order to promote positive mental health and wellbeing at our school, we are all working together to create a safe, positive and healthy attitude towards our general physical and mental health and wellbeing.
We received our third Amber Flag. Well done to all the children!We were also awarded The Daily Mile Flag. Great work everyone! We are proud of the work we are doing on looking after our wellbeing.
