Emotional health for children in schools

Emotional wellbeing for children in schools

What happens in early life impacts on emotional and physical health all the way to adulthood. Therefore a significant priority of our current Health and Wellbeing Strategy is 'Best Start in Life', which is focused on readiness for schools.

However, we also recognise that emotional health and wellbeing must be emphasised as the child continues into their school life and there are a number of services and schemes available locally which work to support this aim.
