Re-Opening Our School Safely/Healthy Mind, Healthy Me

Healthy Mind, Healthy Me (find policies and documents in relation to school re-opening at the bottom of this page)

Children are taught about the importance of good mental health and well-being in an age-appropriate fashion, from Reception Class to Year 6 at Rainow School. Our community is passionate and commited to keeping our bodies and minds healthy.

Below are some useful links and information to support you and your family, particularly during this difficult time.
