As a ‘Healthy School’ we constantly strive to promote positive mental health and emotional well-being We help our children problem solve, develop social awareness, understand and express their feelings, build confidence and emotional resilience. Now, more than ever our mental health and emotional well-being must be a priority for both adults and children in our school community.
We use the ROAR programme to ensure we have a Whole School Approach (WSA) to Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing (MHEWB) which helps our children understand and express their feelings and develop confidence and emotional resilience.
Each week the children have a MHEWB Assembly with Mrs Mailey where we help them to understand their own and other’s emotions, help them develop coping strategies and hopefully help to reduce the stigma around mental health. These messages are delivered through stories, video clips, songs, drama and many other engaging activities.
Each half term we send home a MHEWB Newsletter with top tips, new resources and activities for you to use at home to support good mental health for the whole family.
Our internal pathway helps us to recognise and support any child who is experiencing mental health difficulties and early intervention is quickly put into place through our Feel Good Club. Extra support is available through CAMHS (Children and Adolescents Mental Health Services) - who provide Seedlings and other services for children and their families - and from our Educational Mental Health Practitioner (EMHP) and our close links with our Mental Health Support Team (MHST).
In our school entrance we have a Parent/Carer resource area where you will find information on a range of issues.
Below are some resources that may be useful to support your family's emotional health, as well as your own. Some resources will help to open up conversations around the range of emotions we are all feeling and give us strategies to cope.
As new resources become available we will add them to this section.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
