Promoting positive emotional health and wellbeing
The culture at Howletch Lane Primary School promotes children’s positive emotional health and wellbeing and avoids stigma by:
- Having a whole-school approach to promoting positive emotional health and wellbeing within an ethos of high expectations and constant support.
- Having a committed staff community that sets a whole school culture of positive emotional health and wellbeing, support and value.
- Having a robust regime of continuing professional development (CPD) for staff.
- Having a change party involving children, staff, governors and parents.
- Working closely with children, staff, parents and carers.
- Whole school promotion of building individual resilience and tenacity through the use of learner levels in all areas of the curriculum.
- Happy-Centred Schools curriculum completed on a weekly basis teaching skills to develop wellbeing and resilience.
To ensure that through the promotion of positive emotional health and wellbeing, children are helped to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence and emotional resilience and therefore their capacity to learn.
To increase the awareness and understanding and reduce stigma amongst children, staff and parents/carers of issues involving the emotional health and wellbeing of young people and to provide support at an early stage to anyone who is or appears to be suffering from mental health issues.
Please contact the school if you wish to speak to one of our Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Champions. We are always willing to offer support and advice for yourself and your families.
