Amber Flag

This year, in order to promote positive mental health and well-being at St Paul’s N.S., we have decided to take part in the Amber Flag Initiative. We already promote a climate of inclusivity, diversity and friendship through various school books such as Wellbeing Diaries and Mindful Matters and programmes such as Stay Safe, Walk Tall, RSE, Weaving Wellbeing, Backpack, Rainbows Training for Teacher and Friends for Life.
