Marlbrook Primary School is currently working towards the achievement of the Well-being Award. The award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional well-being and mental health of both staff and pupils.

- Promoting mental health as part of everyday school life

- Ensuring mental health problems are identified early and appropriate support provided
- Offering provision and interventions that matches the needs of its pupils and staff
