Mental Health

At Balby Central Primary Academy we ensure that the Mental Health and Well-being of our pupils is paramount. We have recently been accredited with Bronze status from Leeds Beckett University. As a school we have a Mental Health lead as well as a Mental Health First Aider. We were also accredited our Enhanced Award for Healthy Learning, Healthy Lives through Doncaster Public Health in the summer term 2020.

We use Thrive to further support our pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs. We have 2 accreditated Thirve practitioners in school. These sessions can be a mix of 1:1 and small groups. 

If you need any further support, please contact Miss Talbot (Mental Health Lead) or Mrs Parkin (Inclusion Lead) 


As part of our Relationships education we use the JIgsaw scheme. This is supplemented with other resources and vistors in to school. To find out more please refer to the document below.
