What do we do?

As a school we are committed to providing a short daily opportunity for a range of mindfulness, well being or relaxation techniques to support emotional well being.

 

For example-

  • one element is the use of headspace for meditation.

How do we support your child's emotional wellbeing?

Some examples include:

  • Work with the NSPCC yearly to teach children about being safe and healthy.
  • Topic teams provides opportunities to well being including Yoga and mindfulness.
  • Yoga
  • Our annual well being week
  • Use of the Amazing Me CAMHS programme
  • Forest schools and outdoor learning

 

 

 

Why is it important?

Good mental health helps children:

  • learn and explore the world
  • feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions
  • form and maintain good relationships with others
  • cope with, and manage change and uncertainty
  • develop and thrive.

Building strong mental health early in life can help children build their self-esteem, learn to settle themselves and engage positively with their education. This, in turn, can lead to improved academic attainment, enhanced future employment opportunities and positive life choices.
