Supporting wellbeing                                               

It is natural for us all, especially children, to feel anxious and worried. This is a normal reaction, and some stress is to be expected. 

If you have any concerns about how your child is coping or you need any other support from the school, please let us know by contacting us at: enquiries@st-ignatius.enfield.sch.uk
