Mental health well being for pupils
Your child’s mental health well being is as important as their physical well being and we promote its importance within out curriculum and through the support we offer our children.
Children in years 4,5 and 6 take part in regular lessons looking at managing emotional well being and strategies to support reducing anxiety and stress.
For all our pupils we have worry hands, worry boxes and initiatives such as measure my mood where children can talk about their feelings on a daily basis.
All children have access to free counselling if they need it and we have also employed a health mentor to work with specific children one day a week.
We have a brand new pastoral unit complete with chill out zone and our resident cat Piper for children if they need a relaxed space.
As an academy we are working towards the School mental Health Award:
