Emotionally Friendly Schools


One of our key drivers in everything we do in school is wellbeing. We are absolutely passionate that all children need to be happy, healthy and able to cope with everything that life might throw at them. We teach resilience, confidence, positive self-esteem and coping mechanisms to all children in everything we do, as well as through our wellbeing curriculum. We also develop an understanding of emotions, self-control, good relationships and keeping healthy in mind and body.

We recognise, however, that our mental wellbeing can change from day to day and that there are times in everybody's life when a little extra help or support might be needed and we have invested heavily in support for pupils' social, emotional and mental health. We now deliver a wide range of learning opportunities, support programmes and interventions from whole class work on wellbeing issues to small group programmes, one-to-one sessions and intensive therapies if needed. We work closely with a number of outside agencies such as CAMHS (Child the Adult Mental Health Service), the LSS (Learning Support Service), the Educational Psychology Department, School Nurse Service and others to ensure that we can provide the best experiences and support for your children. We also work very closely with a private company (EqE) who provide training and support for our staff to enable us to deliver therapies and group work which has been developed by highly skilled practitioners in all areas of wellbeing. We now have a number of staff who have been trained to deliver therapeutic interventions and lessons across all year groups.
