Wellbeing and Mental health

We have our School nurse in each week - again if there are specific concerns please share these the appropriate pastoral lead or one of our safeguarding team.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Support

At Abbeyfield we are committed to supporting our staff, students and families with all aspects of Mental Health and Wellbeing. 

If you feel your child would benefit from sessions with our school counsellor please contact the appropriate HOY, so we can complete the necessary steps to make a referral.
