Barley Croft Primary School

Mental Health and Wellbeing

On Tuesday 26th September 2023 we will be hosting our first Mental Health in the Community Hub coffee morning at our school. This drop in session will give you the opportunity to chat to our Family Link Worker, SENDCO, and Adult Mental Health First Aider about any concerns or support for your child, yourself or a family member.


Refreshments and craft activities will also be available, so come and pop in to take advantage of a bit of chill time.


There is no need to book in advance, you can drop-in on the day from 8.30 a.m. – 10.00 a.m.


Below are four links you may find useful , each with a description of the website link.
