Mental Health and Well-being

winnie.jpg

Sometimes our feelings can be really upsetting or scary, especially if you are not sure why you feel the way you do. Are you feeling upset, scared or worried? Thoughts and feelings can be hard to make sense of espeically if you are having new feelings that you don't understand.

Mrs Clark, Mrs Tomlison and Mrs Chappell are our Mental Health First Aiders in school. They are trained and are here to help you.

You can of course talk to any grown up within our school and they will listen and find the best way to help you to feel better.

We also have our very own 'Well-Being Workers' who are two Year 5 pupils who champion the well-being of our young people.

During Lockdown

We supported our families by launching emotional well-being challenge cards weekly (attached to files section) which appear on our school social media platform. Families sent in photographs of themselves completing the activites.

We also set up well-being Wednesday where the children have screen free time (Year group activities attached).

Children and their families have been able to enjoy virtual asseblies based on themes to support their mental health and well-being.

Each family received a pack of emotional well- being resources appropriate to the age and stage of their child/children.

We are supported children's mental health week 2021, activities were planned for each day of the week- Mighty Monday, Thoughtful Tuesday, Wishes Wednesday, Thankful Thursday and Friendly Friday.
