WHAT SUPPORT WILL THERE BE FOR MY CHILD’S OVERALL WELLBEING?

  • 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. 
  • A Music Therapist visits the school once a week to support identified children
