Mental Health & Well-Being

Senior Mental Health Leader: Lisa Jackaman


At Parkview Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff and families. We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.



We are very proud at Parkview to be a recipient of a SILVER AWARD from the Carnegie Centre of Excellence for our work with mental health and wellbeing.


At Parkview we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings better                             
  • help children feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self esteem and ensure children know that they count
  • encourage children to be confident and ‘dare to be different’
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
