Through our well being provision, it is our intention to develop children's physical, social, emotional and mental health. Specifically we aim to provide support to:
- feel safe and cared for
- develop high self-esteem
- be physically and mentally healthy
- acquire an optimistic outlook
- build positive relationships with themselves and others
- overcome barriers to good health, care and education
- develop empathy and contribute to the well being of others
This is delivered through many aspects of our school day, including: breakfast club, playtimes, lunchtime, behaviour policy, external visitors leading assemblies (i.e. NSPCC), cycling proficiency, SEND intervention provision, mental health provision, relationships and sex education, enrichment opportunities, EYFS Framework for prime areas; pupil leadership groups (Sports Ambassadors, School Council, Community Group), P4C, PSHE, SMSC Framework and E-Safety lessons.We assess these aspects through monitoring children's mental and physical health. Children are part of the Local Authority's weighing and measuring programme in Foundation Stage and Y6.
Children's mental and emotional health is assessed through their interactions with others, behaviour and engagement in learning activities. If children experience difficulties in these areas, more information on how we support children's emotional and mental health is provided below.
