Wellbeing & E-safety

Dartford Grammar School takes mental health and emotional wellbeing seriously and we want all students to feel mentally healthy and happy. Our curriculum is designed to develop young people who have a healthy esteem, emotional resilience, are sensitive to their own needs and the needs of others, and know where to go for help when they need it.  

We are always there for the young people in our care. We also welcome the opportunity to work together with parents and guardians to support young people’s wellbeing. Should you have any concerns about your child’s mental health or emotional wellbeing that you believe the school should be aware of, please contact their Curriculum Manager or the Student Wellbeing Officer, Ms Jestico at zjestico@dartfordgrammarschool.org.uk.

Below are some useful links for students and for parents about wellbeing and also about e-safety.
