Wellbeing

You are more precious than jewels. – Proverbs 31:10

Here at Queen's, we hold wellbeing at the heart of all we do. 

To further develop our wellbeing in school, we are participating in the Trailblazer Project with the NHS. This provides additional resources for schools, such an Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner who can support families and pupils.

If you feel you need some help or ideas around Mental Health and Wellbeing, please contact us at info@queens.richmond.sch.uk  with the subject header 'Wellbeing support' to begin the conversation.

Additionally, there are resources here to offer support.  You will find supporting documents about the Coronavirus, how to discuss this with your children, and other helpful links to parenting articles, timetables and healthy living.

Domestic abuse

We recognise that as a result of Coronavirus outbreak, many victims of Domestic Abuse face additional challenges and barriers to accessing support. While self-isolating, families will spend extended periods of time together and it is recognised that controlling behaviour and/or tensions may rise, escalating the risk of abuse and violence. Please access the following resources for help:
