Mental Health and wellbeing
At All Saints' Primary School we are committed to developing the whole child, with wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. We provide regular opportunities for the children to:
- express themselves emotionally
-look at developing physical and mental health
-Providing strategies to deal with big emotions
- Discuss ways to promote positive mental health
-Take part in circle time and P4C sessions on issues that are important to them
- Have a voice and say in what they learn at school to improve wellbeing and self-esteem
