Where children come first


Mental Health and Wellbeing

Welcome, we are the wellbeing team here at school. Our role in school is to support pupil emotional health and well-being.  We offer a triaged approach to well-being support in school, meaning each individual situation is reviewed by the team and the most appropriate support is then arranged. This may be an 'in the moment’ intervention, supporting staff to support pupils in their class, or something more structured. We are continually reviewing and improving on the support we have available in order to achieve a mentally healthy school.   


We will be updating this section of the website on a regular basis to include stories, songs, articles and resources that support emotional health and well-being. Please take a look and feel free to use these with your children at home.   


Please contact us on if you have any questions or concerns.

This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film and doing activities that make you feel good! From the 1st February, use the link below to access activities and an online assembly that you can use at home.

Tips for parents and carers to promote self expression



A zentangle is something you can do at home, using only pen and paper. This art form is a type of mindfulness; it can lower stress levels and spark creativity. It is also suggested that a rubber is never used, instead mistakes are embraced and turned into something beautiful. 

Here is an example I created for Children's Mental Health Week;

The Art Room at home


The charity Place2Be believe that art is a creative tool to develop resilience and connect with others. Their Art Room team are specialists in using art to support and enhance children and young people’s wellbeing. During the lockdown period, the team created a series of free projects for primary aged children to make at home or school together with parents, carers or teachers.

The creative projects can help adults and children to nurture their relationship whilst having fun making art together. Each project offers space to explore an engaging theme through stories, art and conversation. The activities provided can be adapted to a range of settings with children of different abilities and ages.

The aim of these projects is to encourage children to create something they want to make. We hope their creativity can be celebrated and social and emotional wellbeing strengthened through this process.
