As a Thrive school, we are dedicated to the wellbeing and mental health of our children, staff, parents and to the wider community in which we live and learn.
With this in mind, we have committed to achieving a Wellbeing Award for Schools and this pledge emphasises the importance to us, of wellbeing in our school community.
This year, all year groups have completed a unit of work around ‘The Colour Monster’ enabling children to feel confident when discussing their emotions. The displays within each classroom, provide children with the vocabulary they might need when talking about their feelings.
The children are aware that we are all susceptible to negative feelings at various points in our lives and that it’s knowing this, and having strategies to deal with them, such as sharing a safe, accepting forum to discuss these emotions, that leads to developing a positive wellbeing.
As professional educators, we are aware that in order for children to learn, they have to be in the best possible frame of mind. We know the barriers that can occur for our children and have a range of strategies and resources available to us in order to support them.
We have systems in place to check-in with the children at various points throughout the day and resolve minor issues as an when they arise, empowering our children to learn and grow together.
