Mental Health Support

At Cottons Farm Primary Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community: children, staff and families.  We want to support you, our parents and carers, as the most important influence on our children at school. Help us, help you, help us! Working as a team with you is the best way we can support our children socially, emotionally as well as academically.

Our staff are here to support:

Mrs Patmore (Principal and Mental Health and Wellbeing lead)

Kpatmore01@cottonsfarm.theharmonytrust.org

Mrs Gaskill (Family Inclusion Officer)

KGaskill@cottonsfarm.theharmonytrust.org

are here to help if you need to chat or want some advice.

We have provided parents and visitors to our website with a range of resources and information to support healthy wellbeing.  Please take time to look at these as there are lots of helplines and a great deal of advice to support families.
