The wellbeing and welfare of our school community always comes first, ensuring that everyone feels safe, valued and able to talk openly around mental health and well being. Our C360 seeks to educate and support children socially, developing an awareness of their own and others mental health.
Our Character education programme enables children to reflect on their own virtues and explicitly teaches key aspects of character, helping children to deal with all kinds of challenges that may arise as they grow up. Throughout the taught, caught and sought element of Character Education children learn about having healthy minds as well as bodies and learn coping strategies for when things are tough.
Children’s mental health awareness week, planned into our C360 each year, provides opportunities for collaborative working. Concentrating on our community cornerstone, we aim to provide a sense of belonging during the week and in all that we do, supporting children to believe they can inspire change in themselves, others and the world in which we live which in turn supports well being of all.
As a trust we understand that sometimes individuals and families need specific well being support. The Social Inclusion Team work across the Trust and are available to staff, pupils and families where they can listen and signpost when appropriate.
