Health & Wellbeing

Reigate Priory recognises the importance of having a positive mental health and strong wellbeing. Our school vision, values and philosophy of learning all help reinforce our philosophy that for us to be a happy and successful community, we must ensure that the mental health and wellbeing of us all must be of the highest priority. This is so that we can flourish in our other goals. We are dedicated to creating an environment where all members of the school community feel valued and can be open about their feelings, successes and concerns so that we can operate as happy, enthusiastic and resilient individuals.

Alongside the Department of Education and Ofsted, Reigate Priory School have made the commitment to prioritise Staff Wellbeing alongside that of the children we care for.
