Well-Being and Mental Health

Well-Being and Mental Health

At Our Lady of Compassion, we are committed to supporting the mental health and well-being of our pupils and staff.  We aim to be supportive, caring and respectful and encourage our pupils to be open so that they can have their voice heard. 

We recognise 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.  At Our Lady of Compassion, positive mental health is everybody’s responsibility – we all have a role to play.

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.  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 office@olc.solihull.sch.uk and a member of staff will get back to you.
