Mental Health and Wellbeing

At Wimbledon Chase Primary, we realise that effective pastoral support is now more important than ever, and we acknowledge the positive impact this can have on the child and the family as a whole. As a diverse and inclusive community, we care not only about the child’s academic achievements but also about their happiness and their wellbeing.

We hope that you can refer to this section of our website as and when you need it and that it will offer some helpful resources.

There are many apps available that claim to reduce anxiety, help you sleep better or teach you how to notice more of the small stuff and how nice it can be. Here are my top five recommendations based on being easy to use, free to download and pretty much ticking all anxiety, sleep and noticing boxes.
