We aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for the whole school community (children, staff, parents and carers) and recognise how important mental health and wellbeing is to our lives in just the same way as physical health. We recognise that our children’s mental health is a crucial part of their overall wellbeing and can have a huge impact on their learning. We are taking a whole school approach to promoting children’s positive wellbeing, supporting children to become resilient, happy and successful as well as teaching them a range of strategies to solve problems when they arise.
As a school we have developed a mental health and wellbeing curriculum which runs alongside the PHSE curriculum. The children will be delivered a bespoke curriculum designed for the children of Stopsley and each child will have their own wellbeing journal with a range a support techniques and advice to use.
