At Yardley Primary School, we recognise the importance of the wellbeing of our pupils, parents and staff. We are always looking for ways that we can help to support our school community. With this in mind, we are very pleased to be working towards the achievement of the Wellbeing Award for Schools to show our commitment to promoting not just a healthy body, but a healthy mind too.

On this page you will find downloadable resources and links to useful websites – these are regularly updated.

Please remember, our doors (and phone lines!) are always open should you have any issues you need our help with. Our staff are always just on the end of the phone if you need us, or we are in the playground at the start and end of the day.
