Mental Health & Well Being

We have a dedicated email address: WellBeingSuggestions@FolkestoneAcademy.com to use as an online suggestion box for you as parents/carers to be able to send suggestions to improve your child’s wellbeing in school.

This is not a conversational email and you will not receive a written email response, this is to be used as an online suggestion box for Children’s Wellbeing and Mental Health. Your suggestions are valued and appreciated.

Please see the link below for more information.
