Cottesbrooke Infant & Nursery School

An Academy

"Caring... Inspiring... Nurturing... Successful"

At Cottesbrooke Infant and Nursery school, we are committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of our children and staff.  We aim to be caring, supportive, respectful and supportive and encourage our children to be open so that they can have their voice heard. 

 

At Cottesbrooke Infant and Nursery School we recognise that positive mental health is everybody’s responsibility – we all have a role to play. We understand that everyone experiences different life challenges, and that each of us may need help to cope with them sometimes.  We understand that anyone and everyone may need additional emotional support. 

 

During this difficult time although our school is currently closed to all but a few children, we’re still here to support your child and your family in whatever way we can.  We’ve put together some resources which we hope you find helpful. Please find these on our websites below.

 

If you have any concerns about how your child is coping or need any other support from the school, please let us know by contacting the school office at enquiry@cottesbrooke-inf.bham.sch.uk and a member of staff will get back to you.
