At St. Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our children and staff.

We understand that life experiences can set challenges which can make us vulnerable at times, and additional help is sometimes needed.

We believe that positive mental health and emotional wellbeing is just as important physical health.

We have set up a safe place within our school for our children and staff to access. A space where they can go to, to take time and if needed, be listened to in a non-judgmental way. 

If families need to make contact with our pastoral care/ safeguarding team for support please feel free to call the school office and ask for a message to be passed on to Mrs O'Brien, Mrs Melling, Miss Dooner or Mrs Sanderson. Or feel free to email school and we will contact you as soon as possible -
