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.

Remind children that these feelings are normal and make time for some coping strategies, these could include:
Children will be supported in school with any concerns they have and can also be support further if the need it there.
