Health & Wellbeing
We now have a health and wellbeing team in school, who will work to support the children and their families, to gain a positive outlook on
Mental Health and emotional development.
Our vision is to support each child’s holistic well-being by:
• Raising awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing as an open and positive topic
• Promoting positive emotional and physical development
• Recognising and addressing concerns as they arise
• Supporting children and their families in implementing effective coping strategies We aim to achieve this through:
• Education for staff, families and the children through assemblies, workshops and effective links to Mental Health support groups and charities
• Effective communication across the school community through class dojo, suggestion boxes and an allocated Mental Health support team
• Introducing coping mechanisms through Mental Health events, assemblies and class activities, as well as 1-1/group support sessions
