At Luxulyan School, we believe in promoting good mental health and wellbeing for the whole school community. With the pressures of modern life, social media and the impact of the pandemic affecting us all, it is no wonder that we are seeing an increase in mental health problems with children.
At Luxulyan we place high importance on our mental health and wellbeing. Each child is encouraged to identify a trusted adult who they can speak to in times of worry or anxiety. This does not have to be their class teacher – it may be a previous class teacher or another member of staff – we are always available for our pupils

Our 'Pyramid of need' details the support and interventions we provide to support pupils with their mental health and wellbeing.
