Mental Health and Well being

We know that life can be really challenging for both children and adults and that sometimes this can affect our well being and mental health. At Faringdon Infant School we firmly believe that being mentally healthy is needed for us to cope with day to day life and needs to be prioritised in order for children to be ready for any other learning. On this page we will be sharing ideas about how to support your mental health and to help us all in well being - being well.
