Wellbeing is at the heart of what we do. We aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for our whole school community. We recognise how important mental health and emotional wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that children’s mental health is a crucial factor in their overall wellbeing and can affect their learning and achievement.
Our school is a place for everyone to experience a nurturing and supportive environment that has the potential to develop self-esteem and give positive experiences for overcoming adversity and building resilience. For some, our school will be a place of respite from difficult home lives. We offer positive role models and relationships, which are critical in promoting children’s wellbeing and can help engender a sense of belonging and community.
Our role in school is to ensure that children are able to manage times of change and stress, and that they are supported to reach their potential or access help when they need it. We also have a role to ensure that children learn about what they can do to maintain positive mental health and where they can go if they need help and support.
