Ospringe Primary School understands that mental health and wellbeing should be at the forefront of our community. We believe that if we have a united approach towards looking after our own and each others mental health, we can support children to have high levels of wellbeing. We nurture pupils to flourish, and succeed by providing opportunities for them, and our whole school community, to develop and grow their resilience, both physically and mentally.
