Mental Health & Wellbeing

Mental Health & Well-being 

At Bickerstaffe C.E School our mental health is just as important as our physical health. Miss O`Kane has undertaken training in the nationally recognised qualification delivered by Mental Health First Aid England and is fully qualified in Mental First Aid. 

As a school we also have a Mental Health & Well-being policy.


School are committed to promoting and supporting positive mental health to everyone involved in school life. 


Our aim is 

  • To increase awareness of mental health issues
  • To reduce stigma and discrimination 
  • To promote recognition of symptoms
  • To signpost avenues to see professional help.


We promote Mental Health & Well-being to pupils and staff by

  • Providing a weekly school counsellor who provides sessions for those who may need support 
  • Starting each day with meditation
  • Scheduling the Daily Mile each day 
  • Teaching children about their mental health
  • Having Bob our school dog in school, daily.
