St Stephen's

Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning


As you know, the positive physical and mental health and wellbeing of our children is the single most important focus at St. Stephen's. Supported, happy children learn and thrive and with this in mind, we have a number of resources available to our whole school community that we'd like to share. 

Please scroll down to find a wealth of guides, information, programmes and handy tips to help keep you and your children in the very best of physical and mental health.



Achieving for Children have launched a new Resource Hub to help children, young people and their families with their emotional wellbeing. Waiting times for support are increasing and it is important that a wider range of support is available for children and young people when they need it. 

These online self help resources include pre-recorded video workshops, helplines, online counselling and information leaflets. 

We will be adding further information regularly so do keep checking back or if you have any suggestions do get in touch.

The Resource Hub is set out under themes to help you understand which services and support is available or might be useful under different circumstances. Each heading below is a link to the sections in the Resource Hub.

Thriving and prevention - community initiatives that support mental wellness, emotional wellbeing and resilience of the whole population (opens a new window) 
Getting advice and signposting - focuses on children, young people and families who may require temporary support within the community, access to information and self management resources (opens a new window)
Getting help - focuses on children, young people and families who would benefit from focused, evidence based treatment (opens a new window)
Getting more help - the focus is on children, young people and families who would benefit from extensive long term treatment. Some conditions such as psychosis, eating disorders, emerging personality disorders and complex neurodevelopmental needs (opens a new window)
Getting risk support - the focus is on those who have not benefited from or are unable to use help, but are of such a risk they are still in contact with services (opens a new window)
