Children at the heart of all we do

Scroll Down  


It is important that we look after the mental health and wellbeing of our children as much as we look after their physical health.  A mentally healthy child has the ability to:

  • Develop psychologically, emotionally, socially, intellectually and spiritually.
  • Initiate, develop and sustain mutually satisfying relationships.
  • Use and enjoy solitude.
  • Become aware of others and empathise with them.
  • Play and learn.
  • Develop a sense of right and wrong.
  • Resolve problems and setbacks satisfactorily and learn from them.


How we look after the wellbeing of our children:

  • Regular check ins using visuals, for example at the start of the day, after breaks and lunchtimes and at the end of the day to review how children are feeling.
  • Visuals to help pupils understand and express their feelings (zones of regulation) and how to regulate themselves (for example ‘calm choice’).
  • Individual Regulation Support Plans for those children who need additional support to understand, express and manage their emotions.
  • Promotion of activities to help pupils to regulate themselves, for example calm choice boards.
  • Supported social times.
  • Fidget toys and other sensory support.
  • Lunchtime activities to create positive peer interaction.
  • Playing games and using games not only to relax and have fun but also develop essential social skills and support regulation.
  • Individualised social stories when appropriate, to support pupils coping with difficult events.
  • Regular exercise and physical activity at playtimes and during PE.
  • Established positive and open relationships with parents/carers, liaising with parents to support each child.
  • Use of reward systems and clear expectations of conduct.
