The Ridgeway C.E. Primary School

Children's Wellbeing & Mental Health

At Ridgeway CE Primary School, we recognise the importance of supporting our whole school community in creating an open environment where well-being and Mental Health needs are discussed and shared. 

We recognise how critical relationships between staff, children and parents are in promoting well-being and a sense of belonging within school. If you have concerns about the well-being of your child,  please speak initially  to your child’s class teacher or your doctor. 

Should your child need more specialised support, you, your doctor or teacher can make referrals to the services on offer in Oxfordshire, these include the Mental Health Support Team (MHST) and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). You will find useful information on these services at Please be patient, this referral process can take some time.
