Pupil Health and Wellbeing

At Alverton Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of all our pupils, parents and staff. We understand that everyone experiences challenges in life that can make us vulnerable and, at times, anyone may need additional support in some way. 

If you have any worries about your child's emotional behaviour or wellbeing, please let us know. There may be things we can do to help and support you.
