Mental Health & Wellbeing

Wellbeing is not just important to children but to all of us. For success of pupils in the school, it is vital that parents/carers and staff recognize wellbeing as a fundamental achievement in life.

At St Thomas we believe that Mental Health and Wellbeing is fundamental to a person's growth and development.  Please find below details of how we support you and your child:-

Support available from St Thomas of Canterbury School

It is really common for children to be experiencing some of the following challenges:

•  Worries – for example worries about leaving the house, returning to school and being separated from their parent/caregiver

•  Behaviour difficulties – for example not listening to instructions, rudeness and acting out

Lots of parents are also feeling more worried than usual and are unsure about how to manage some of these challenges. This is understandable and, if you are experiencing any of the above, The Emotional Wellbeing Service may be able to help! 

The Emotional Wellbeing Service is a team of practitioners who are usually based in school, and they offer support to parents of primary school children.  See Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner (EWP) tab below for more information. If you would like to enquire further about this, you can submit the attached referral form to them directly to InfoMertonWP@swlstg.nhs.uk or through the school. 

A range of live and recorded webinars are available through the Merton Wellbeing Service - details are provided below - please scroll down the page.

Additionally, The South West London Commissioning Group has created a website with Guidance and advice for children, young people, parents, carers and teachers.
