At Carlton Junior and Infant School, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole community (children, staff, parents and carers.) We recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives and that is is just as important as our physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health and wellbeing plays a huge part in their learning and achievement. All children will experience lows and highs during their school career and may also be challenged with significant life events and therefore it is our duty to support these children through their journeys.
We believe that our school is a place for children, staff and parents/carers to experience a nurturing and supportive environment. Our goal is to develop develop self-esteem levels and give positive experiences for overcoming adversity and building resilience.
Our role in school is to ensure that children and parents/carers are able to manage times of change and stress and that they know we are here to help and support if required. We also have a role to ensure that those in our school community learn about what they can do to maintain positive mental health, understand the things that affect their mental health, how they can help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues, and where they can go if they need help and support.
The aim of this page is to provide information and support on how to stay emotionally well, if there is any information you require that is missing then please feel free to contact Miss Wilson via the school office or by email: carltonnurtures@
Hello, I’m Miss Wilson, some of you may be familiar with me but for those who are not I would like to introduce myself. I am the pastoral lead at Carlton and I am here to support you and your family. It is my job to keep your children safe and to support their Wellbeing and Mental Health, however another vital part of my role is to work with and support parents too. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns, worries you would like to discuss, or if there is any information or support you would like.
