Mental Health And Wellbeing
As we progress through another lockdown period, it is more important than ever to ensure we look after our own mental health and wellbeing.
On the school website you will find a variety of links to different resources to support the health and wellbeing of our parents, pupils and staff.
NHS Grampian have also launched a Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing Support page full of advice and signposts on where you can seek support and advice.
This includes links to:
