Mental Health & Well-being

Templenewsam Halton Primary School is committed to improving mental health and well-being through education and offering support. We teach all pupils about mental health and how to look after their own and others around them. 

Speech and Language Therapy

We work in partnership with our local health care providers including NHS Leeds Speech and Language Therapy Team. In school, our Teachers and Learning Support Assistants liaise closely with Speech and Language therapists and carry out support programmes in school under their guidance and support. If we feel your child may benefit from speech and language therapy, we will talk to you about putting in a referral to the service to get their advice and support.
