MP presents Market Drayton school with mental health award

Helen Morgan MP has visited Buntingsdale Primary School, Market Drayton, to present the school’s Mental Health Award

North Shropshire MP Helen Morgan visited Buntingsdale Primary School, in Buntingsdale Park, Market Drayton, on Friday to present the Carnegie Center of Excellence Award for Mental Health to young pupils and their committed teachers.

Headteacher Claire Elkes said: “After the pandemic made children forget about getting along with each other, we felt mental health was something we had to focus on.

“We have a group of luxury champions and run events including Feelgood Friday.”

Mrs. Morgan presented the award to the school and then spent some time visiting classrooms and answering questions from 80 children at the school, ages 3 to 11.

The Young Welfare Champions proudly shared their work and all the children had the opportunity to ask Ms. Morgan a series of questions on a variety of issues.

Topics covered during Ms. Morgan’s question time included the future of the nearby Tern Hill Barracks site, local bus services, ambulance wait times, and why she wanted to become an MP.

The Small Country School’s motto is “Learn to live and live to learn” and the award lasts for three years, after which schools can apply for reassessment to maintain their level or strive for higher quality standards.

This includes an assessment of leadership, culture and what the school does to support pupils and teachers.
