Mental Health and Wellbeing
Welcome to our new page dedicated to supporting mental health of our staff, pupils and parents. One of our school priorities for this year is to raise the profile of all aspects of health education in both curricular and extra curricular opportunities for everyone. These are a few of the many changes we have made so far:
- Changed the structure of the school day to incorporate enrichment opportunities for our children
- Removed the school bell
- Developed a sensory shed
- Created opportunities for parents and staff to partake in training opportunities linked to health and wellbeing
- Established a wellbeing lead in school
- All classrooms now incorporate some flexible seating. E.g. cushions, standing work area, concentration station
- Incorporated mindful activities into our weekly curriculum lessons
- Increased the amount of outdoor lessons for our pupils
We will keep updating the sections below with support for adults and children in managing health and wellbeing during the current COVID19 outbreak. Keep checking back for regular updates.
