Mental Health Education
Mental health education promotes pupils’ well-being through an understanding of their own and others’ emotions and the development of healthy coping strategies. It also contributes to safeguarding, providing pupils with knowledge, understanding and strategies to keep themselves healthy and safe, as well as equipping them to support others who are facing challenges.
As a school we are committed to supporting the children to develop positive mental well-being. We discuss strategies to support this in Collective Worship, have a week annually focused on Healthy Me; Healthy Mind and promote the link between physical activity and positive mental health. We teach children 'mindfulness' activities and the importance of taking time to be still, quiet and reflect.
We have also held Parent Workshops on 'Raising Resilient Children' and 'Supporting Your Anxious Child' as this something which has been recognised as increasing more recently. We aim to provide support and strategies for parents to enable them to further support their children at home.
Look out for information about upcoming Parent Workshops on the Calendar and the Noticeboard.
