At Belton Lane Primary School we take children’s wellbeing as seriously as their education. We know that when children are happy and secure they are able to learn. We know and see academic performance is directly linked to children’s wellbeing and this fact drives our growing provision and support for our pupil’s physical and mental health.
We work closely with the children throughout school to support wellbeing and have a strong pastoral team. We have sourced a number of websites to support parents/carers and children outside of school. Many of these websites offer advice and guidance and where you can go for further support.
