Mental Health at HRPS

At Hutton Rudby Primary School Mental Health and Wellbeing is of the utmost importance. We as a community value mindfulness and believe in giving children the chance to develop positive mental health as much as developing their academic skills.

We have worked hard to develop a whole school approach to pupil wellbeing. Through PSHE education, pastoral care and many other approaches we not only keep pupils safe and well, and support them when things go wrong, but also aim to equip pupils to make positive choices to keep themselves and others safe and healthy, manage their own behaviour and relationships and to know and be able to independently access the sources of support they need for themselves or when they are worried about a friend.

Please see below a list of useful resources for supporting children and young people’s mental health

  • Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families: Their self-care resource for their ‘On My Mind’ campaign, has many simple self-care activities which you can do at home. Written by young people to help other young people who are feeling low or anxious.  The strategies should also be useful to adults.
  • The Headlight Project teaches children about mental health, whilst providing support and help for adults.
