Emotional Health and Wellbeing Information

At Hayes we recognise that there are times when it is possible that you may need some extra support and help to manage unfamiliar situations and feelings. The Hayes pastoral team is well experienced and able to provide some support in school however, the following websites may be useful if you need additional support and guidance. Whilst we aim to support in every way we can, there is a wide range of external support available which maybe a good starting point for you.

If you wish to discuss further please contact a member of the pastoral team or email wellbeing@hayes.bromley.sch.uk
