At St Laurence School, we promote good emotional wellbeing through our daily ethos and seek to identify behaviour changes and signs of mental distress early and signpost appropriate support.

The aim of this section of the St Laurence School website is to support students and parents and signpost them to outside organisations that are there to offer expert help when you need it and beyond school hours. Our core values of ‘Care, Inspire, Succeed’ recognise that that emotional wellbeing is a key indicator of academic achievement, and subsequently improved outcomes in later life.

It’s OK to not be OK. Your wellbeing is as important to us at St Laurence School as your academic success.
