Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental Health and Wellbeing at Grove Street
At Grove Street Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of all our pupils and staff. Like we all have physical health, we all have mental health and we know that at times everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable. We believe that positive mental health is everybody's business and that we all have a role to play.
