Additional Mental Health Resources and Acitivities

The Therapeutic Garden - This calm garden space is used for interventions such as Mindfulness and is a quiet space for individuals to sit and talk to the Pastoral team. The children also planted seeds and grew vegetables here during the first lockdown. Staff also use it during the Summer months as an alternative to the staff room.
