Mental Health and Wellbeing

Links to Useful sites/ resources:

 

At Wilby Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our children and colleagues. We know that our school culture has a positive impact on well-being and we all have a role to play in ensuring that ours is a warm, welcoming and supportive school.

Any one of us may need additional emotional support occasionally. When this happens we encourage everyone in our school community to reach out to connect with a friend and share concerns. 

Our school culture is one that promotes community and social cohesion and we positively promote the idea that everyone in our school community should be able to identify at least one person that they can trust to speak to when times get difficult.

At our school we:

  • help children to recognise and understand their emotions and feelings better including understanding at a basic level how the brain works                          
  • support children to feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
  • actively promote positive relationships and a sense of community as this supports mental health and well being
  • promote self-esteem and ensure children know that they are talented and unique 
  • encourage children to be confident
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks 

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to support children's well-being, development of relationships and good mental health through a range of lessons and positive experiences including ‘Growth Mindset’ lessons and ReflectED,  PE & Sports and Educational Visits.

Additional Support :

From time to time our children may need different levels of support:

Universal Support - Through our school ethos and our broad and balanced curriculum of activities including those listed above we aim to meet the needs of all our pupils 

Additional support - For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences we offer additional support, for example, special time on a regular basis to talk with a supportive member of staff (This will be discussed with parents and the child) and /or attend our Nurture –‘Time to be me’ group on Thursdays / Fridays each week or Lego therapy groups designed to raise self esteem and promote social skills.

Targeted support-  For pupils who need more differentiated support, there are specific resources and targeted interventions including e.g. Anxiety/ Anger management support through the School Nursing Team, Where  more specialist support is required the school will sign-post to additional services e.g. the G.P. or CAMHs
