Positive Mental Health & Wellbeing
We are committed to making it our mission to promote resilience, positive wellbeing and mental health for all our pupils and staff. We understand wellbeing to be a state of being comfortable, healthy and happy. We aim to drive this message forward, and to ensure that mental health and well-being is “everyone’s business” across the whole school community. We will strive to create an environment that has a whole school approach, in providing excellent mental health support, understanding and intervention. We will put Wellbeing at the heart of our school to ensure successful learning, and commit to our policies reflecting this practise.
We believe having a mentally healthy community is not about being happy all the time, but about working together through the challenges and sharing the celebrations; feeling supported, heard, accepted, valued and empowered.
One such challenge for parents and students alike is the return to school after the holidays. Please find attached support from Dr Tinarae, (child psychologist, award winning author focusing on social emotional and mental health of children and young people).
The ‘Sunday Plan’ is a support sheet to help parents support students the day before they return.
The ‘Monday Morning Plan’ provides support for the morning of the return.
