Mental Health and Well-Being

Our mental health and well-being leader is Wendy Roberts.  You can contact her via the school office or by emailing wroberts@annsgrove.sheffield.sch.uk 

Welcome to the wellbeing page for parents  

 We are all becoming more aware of the impact of childrens’ emotional well-being on their attendance and achievement at school. It’s very important for everyone working at Anns Grove to support children and adults when they face challenges in their lives and we have access to training and resources to help us to help you and your child.

Our vision is to be a mentally healthy school with a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing. We are a school that helps children flourish, learn and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and the adults around them, to develop the strengths and coping skills that underpin resilience. We see positive mental health and wellbeing as fundamental to our values and culture. Mental health and wellbeing is seen as ‘everybody’s business’ at Anns Grove.

Our school community is one where children can enjoy a welcoming, secure, happy and healthy environment, where everyone in our community can develop self-confidence, self-esteem, self motivation, independence, compassion, tolerance and understanding of others. We know that everyone will experience life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at these times anyone may need additional emotional support.  We aim to step in and provide additional support and nurture where we see increased need.
