Meet the Team
As part of my role as Inclusion Lead, I am also the Senior Mental Health Lead, along with Mrs Preston, here in school.
Our aim is to promote a mentally healthy school environment through:
- Promoting our school values and encouraging a sense of belonging
- Promoting pupil voice and opportunities to participate in decision-making
- Celebrating academic and non-academic achievements in order to promote self-esteem
- Providing opportunities to develop a sense of worth through taking responsibility for themselves and others
- Providing opportunities to reflect and reset
- Access to appropriate support for children and staff that meets their needs
- Helping children to understand their emotions and feelings better and to feel comfortable sharing any concerns or worries
- Helping children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks
The Pupil and Family Support team have appointed Well-being Ambassadors after carefully working through a list of applicants in school.
Our Well-being Ambassadors will be given age appropriate training on understanding 'big feelings/little feelings'. We will hold regular meetings and Gary Fielding- Pupil and Family Support Worker from St Paul’s Church of England Primary School will comes into school every half term to chat with our WBA's, give them time to reflect on their role and offer support.
This year's appointed Well-being Ambassadors are:
Mason, Nyla-Rose, Harry T, Jack M, Aarhui
The Well-being Ambassador’s skills are:
