The whole school teach PSHE using a scheme called ‘Jigsaw’ which encourages mindfulness and includes lessons on pupil safety and healthy eating. As it is a whole school approach PSHE is focussed on in assemblies and during the school day - not just during the discrete lessons.
Every class has a mental health well-being board.
Each child has half termly 1:1 ‘mentoring’ meetings with their class teacher to discuss academic and social progress.
A worry box is in place so children can ask to talk to staff discretely.
Friendship benches are in place on every playground and children are aware that if they want someone to play with/talk to, they can sit there and someone will come to them.
We have a young carers group to support children that have been identified as either young carers or children of carers.
We run a number of social interventions to encourage character development.
We offer a number of free after school clubs.
All children have access to free fruit during break time.
Staff and children are regularly trained in First Aid.
We work with parents to ensure that those children with additional medical needs have the appropriate care and the least disruption to their learning.
We operate a highly positive system of behaviour management. Children earn ‘Smileys’ for positive behaviour / learning which in turn earn them certificates.
We send home postcards and give achievement certificates to children in assemblies.
We reward excellent attendance with certificates, prizes and trips.
We hold the Anti-Bullying mark.
Pupils on the SEND register have an termly target review meetings and pupil voice is obtained weekly ensuring their views are heard.
We have three trained "Thrive Practitioners" in school and individual children are seen as need by these practitioners to support their emotional wellbeing.
