Wellbeing at Wavertree

Belong      Believe     Achieve


Our Wavertree family support one another and wellbeing is a priority.  We understand the important role we play in helping our pupils to develop their emotional and mental wellbeing and developing a growth mindset. We talk about and promote positive mental health, as we believe this can contribute towards improving a range of outcomes for our pupils, including attitudes to learning and better attendance. 

This is supported by our inclusive ethos and our school values. We instill our values of fellowship, respect, hope, forgiveness, wisdom and compassion in order for all children to achieve their full potential under the spiritual guidance of God and the teachings of Jesus.
