Mental Health & Wellbeing
At Red Hall Primary School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of our whole school community – pupils, staff, parents/carers and governors.
We have worked hard over the past 4 years to develop a unique ethos which puts our children and the staff’s well-being at the heart of everything we do. This is what sits at the core of the service we provide at Red Hall Primary School.
We know that everyone experiences life challenges that can make us vulnerable and at times, anyone may need additional emotional support. We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.
At our school we:
- help children to understand and manage their emotions and feelings better
- help children and staff to feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
- help children socially to form and maintain relationships
- promote self-esteem and ensure children and staff know that they count
- support children to recognise the impact of choices they make
- encourage children and staff to be confident
- help children and staff to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
We offer different levels of support:
Universal Support– To meet the needs of all through our overall ethos and our wider curriculum.
Additonal support– For those who may have short term needs and those who may have been made vulnerable by life experiences such as bereavement.
Targeted support– For those who need more differentiated support and resources or specific targeted interventions such as wellbeing groups or personal mentors.
